21. YOUNG ELIZABETH: PRINCESS. PRISONER. QUEEN.
Nicola Tallis
Tuesday 25th June 17:45 (60 Min)
Stove Tent by Viking
Celebrated author and historian Nicola Tallis tells the gripping story of the young Elizabeth I. Before she was three years old Elizabeth had been both a princess and then a bastard following the brutal execution of her mother, Anne Boleyn. After losing several stepmothers and then her father, the teenage Elizabeth was confronted with the predatory attentions of Sir Thomas Seymour. In 1554 she was implicated in a plot to topple her half-sister, Mary, from her throne. Imprisoned in the Tower of London, she faced intense pressure and interrogation while adamantly protesting her innocence. When Elizabeth became queen at the age of twenty-five, she had already endured more tumult than many monarchs experienced in a lifetime.
