The Lady Penelope

£6.99

Product description

"Really masterly. This authoritative history tells what eventually happened to 'The Other Boleyn Girl'-and her great-granddaughter, The Lady Penelope." -Philippa Gregory, author, The Other Boleyn Girl Penelope Devereux was the brightest star who ever shone in the court of Queen Elizabeth I in 16th-century England. She was the most beautiful woman of her generation and muse to countless poets and musicians, yet her story ended in tragedy: she died in disgrace on 7th July 1607, a widow, outcast from court, and stripped of all her titles. Her life touched on every great event of the age-the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, the defeat of the Spanish Armada, the arrival of King James, and the Gunpowder Plot-and she knew many of the celebrated artistic figures of the day including William Shakespeare. This is a dramatic, visual, emotional, and ultimately tragic story set against the character of Queen Elizabeth I and the staged pageantry of her Court, and will have immediate appeal to lovers of historical biographies.
