Alnwick Castle: Book Talk with Nicola Tallis: Young Elizabeth


Join acclaimed historian Nicola Tallis to discover the future Elizabeth I’s perilous journey towards England’s throne.

"Queenship was by no means a certain path for Henry VIII’s younger daughter. By the time she claimed the throne, she had already endured more tumult than many monarchs experienced in a lifetime. This colourful and immensely detailed biography charts Elizabeth’s turbulent and unstable upbringing, exploring the dangers and tragedies that plagued her early life.

Nicola Tallis draws on primary sources including those written by Elizabeth herself to throw new light on the early life of this iconic monarch."
