Publisher's Summary

Cousin to Elizabeth I - and possibly Henry VIII's illegitimate granddaughter - Lettice Knollys had a life of dizzying highs and pitiful lows. 

Entangled in a love triangle with Robert Dudley and Elizabeth I, banished from court, plagued by scandals, embroiled in treason, Lettice would lose a husband and son to the executioner's ax. In the first ever biography of this remarkable woman, Nicola Tallis takes us through her dramatic life and the grand sweep of the Tudor Age and the events that define it.

Too many maybe and perhaps

The first two thirds of the book contained too many maybe and perhaps (perhaps she saw this). By the end there were more actual facts appearing. Loved the reader will be looking at more books read by Charlotte Strevens.
