Description

Her personal life riven by passion, illness and intrigue, Queen Anne presided over some of the most momentous events in British history. Like Antonia Fraser's life of Marie Antoinette or Amanda Foreman's 'The Duchess', 'Queen Anne' is historical biography at its best.

Auteur

Anne Somerset is the acclaimed biographer of Elizabeth I and the author of many books including Unnatural Murder, an account of the sensational Overbury murder, which was shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger award for non-fiction; and The Affair of the Poisons: Murder, Infanticide and Satanism at the Court of Louis XIV.



Texte du rabat

A historical biography of Queen Anne, who inherited the crowns of England and Scotland in 1702, 14 years after she helped oust her father from his throne and deprived her newborn half-brother of his birthright. Against all expectation, she proved Britain's most successful Stuart ruler. 'Anne Somerset has done a real service both to us and to her namesake.' "Sunday Times"
