___________________________________ Mary and Elizabeth: cousins, rivals, queens. They allied and fought and plotted - but could never escape their bond... A story the has inspired the forthcoming film: MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS The thrilling new history from bestselling historian and b...roadcaster, Kate Williams. At the end of the Tudor era, two queens ruled one island. But sixteenth-century Europe was a man's world and powerful voices believed that no woman could govern. All around Mary and Elizabeth were sycophants, spies and detractors who wanted their dominion, their favour and their bodies. Elizabeth and Mary shared the struggle to be both woman and queen. But the forces rising against the two regnants, 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. Kate Williams has created an electrifying new perspective on both Mary and on Elizabeth - and on the great sacrifices a woman must make to be a queen.
