Beware Princess ElizabethImprisonment Betrayal Lost love Murder What must a princess endure? Elizabeth Tudor's teenage and young adult years during the turbulent reigns of Edward and then Mary Tudor are hardly those of a fairy tale princess Her mother has been beheaded by Elizabeth's own father Henry Not bad I do not know who is the ideal reader for this though Middle school? Elizabeth I is a fascinating historical figure This book does a good job putting readers inside her potential thoughts when she was a teen She was considered only a bastard daughter of the deceased Tudor monarch Henry VIII Her unpopular rivals on the throne were moving her around England into unsavory castlesprisons hoping she would die of natural causes If she died naturally the unpopular leaders would not be blamedThroughout Elizabeth's entire life and it was definitely a long life considering the late 1500s I'll wager that many people grumbled at regular intervals good god how is this bitch still alive??
