The Six Reigning Queens of EnglandBook - 2007
"In the last millennium there have been only six English female sovereigns. With the exception of Mary I, they are among England's most successful monarchs. Without Mary II and Anne, the Glorious Revolution of 1688 might not have taken place. Elizabeth I and Victoria each gave their name to an age, presiding over long periods when the country made significant progress in the growth of empire, prestige, and power. All of them have far-reaching legacies." "In this narrative, Maureen Waller delves into the intimate lives of England's queens regnant in detail, assessing their achievements from a female perspective."--BOOK JACKET.
