The Secret Life of Elizabeth I

(2005)
A non fiction book by

 
 
A secret that could have changed the course of English history...
Acclaimed historian Paul Doherty offers an insightful interpretation of one of the most fascinating English monarchs in his masterful 'faction', The Secret Life of Elizabeth I.
From master historian Paul Doherty comes a detective story with a difference: tracking down the real Elizabeth I, and capturing the atmosphere of Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Written as a 'faction', The Secret Life of Elizabeth I interprets original sources through one of the Queen's ladies-in-waiting. These illuminating 'recollections' form the book, uncovering everything from the passionate relationship between Elizabeth and Robert Dudley, to the stunning revelation that they had a son, Arthur Dudley, seized by the Spanish in 1587.
What readers are saying about Paul Doherty:
'Doherty is a spellbinding storyteller with an exceptional grasp of history. This story is of the usual high standard we expect from him and utterly fascinating, I couldn't put it down'
'This book is beyond fantastic. Paul Doherty brought Elizabethan times back to life here - making you feel you're there'
'Doherty proves that he is a scholar as well as a writer of novels'
