Kate Williams Rival Queens

A scintillating and elegant fusion of royal biography and political thriller Rival Queens tells the story of Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I of England, two powerful monarchs on a single island, surrounded by sycophants, spies and detractors, accosted for their dominion, their favour and their bodies. Besieged by secret plots, devastating betrayals and a terrible final act only one queen could survive to rule all. 

Kate Williams is an author, social historian and broadcaster. She fell in love with history while studying for her BA and DPhil at the University of Oxford and has MAs from Queen Mary's and Royal Holloway. She is a professor of history and appears regularly on television.

Feedback From 2016 Festival

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

I attended 4 events, next year I will want to attend even more talks. 
A friend came to stay with us and she was equally impressed by the talks she attended.
