Daughters of the Winter Queen : four remarkable sisters and the enduring legacy of Mary, Queen of Scots
Nancy Bazelon Goldstone (Author)
"The story of four noble sisters and their glamorous mother, Elizabeth Stuart, granddaughter of Mary, Queen of Scots. Elizabeth Stuart's life was transformed when her father ascended to the English throne as King James I. Her marriage to a German count far below her rank was arranged with the understanding that James would help her husband achieve the crown of Bohemia. Her father's terrible betrayal of this promise would ruin 'the Winter Queen', as Elizabeth would forever be known, imperil the lives of those she loved and launch a war that would last thirty years. Forced into exile, the Winter Queen found refuge for her growing family in Holland, where the glorious art and culture of the Dutch Golden Age formed the backdrop to her daughters' education."
