Praise

Advance praise for After Elizabeth

“Leanda de Lisle has done what historians, to date, have overlooked. She spots the story in the seemingly uneventful handover of power to James I after Elizabeth’s death and rediscovers its thrilling drama. James’s accession was far from inevitable–de Lisle vividly recounts the uncertainty, greed, intrigue, and hypocrisy that defined the new age. We enter a slippery, twilight world where legitimacy is debased and conspiracy and corruption thrive. This is an original, informative, absorbing account, written with verve and style.”
–John Guy, author of Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart

“A deep and fascinating account of this transformative year. Leanda de Lisle’s close focus draws us into palace corridors, country houses, and city streets where the excitement, intrigue, and danger are palpable.”
–Jane Dunn, author of Elizabeth & Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens

“This masterly account recaptures superbly the edgy, wary feel of court and country at the key moment when Tudor England was transformed into Stuart Britain. In emphasizing the faults of Queen Elizabeth I and the acuity of her successor, King James I, Leanda de Lisle has brilliantly subverted the traditional story.”
–Andrew Roberts, author of Napoleon and Wellington: The Long Duel
