The Men Who Would Be King: Suitors to Queen Elizabeth I
The story of the many suitors of Elizabeth I - one of the most eligible brides in 16th century Europe.
From her childhood, overshadowed by the marital upheavals of her father Henry VIII, and the tragic first encounter with courtship, to the fantastical flirtations of her old age, Elizabeth refused to commit herself to any man.
