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. Beseiged 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

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.

Thanks for the invitation to Dorchester- most enjoyable (and an appreciative audience) with the added bonus of meeting Lynne Truss!

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.
