Kate Williams: Elizabeth & Mary - Rival Queens

About Kate Williams: Elizabeth & Mary - Rival Queens

At the end of the Tudor era, two queens ruled one island.

Elizabeth and Mary shared the struggle to be both woman and queen. But the forces rising against the queens regnant, and the conflicts of love and dynasty, drove them apart.

For Mary, Elizabeth was a fellow queen with whom she dreamed of a lasting friendship. For Elizabeth, Mary was a threat. It was a schism that would end in secret assassination plots, devastating betrayal and, eventually, a terrible final act.

Rival Queens is the latest book from best-selling historian and broadcaster Kate Williams.

Chaired by Janet Smyth of the Edinburgh International Book Festival

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kate Williams: Elizabeth & Mary - Rival Queens are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
