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.

I enjoyed my festival event in Dorchester very much. What a friendly welcome the audience gave me! Good luck with future festivals -- and well done.

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.

I very much enjoyed the events I came to at the Dorchester  Literary festival. It was all very well organised. The sessions on The Seabird's cry, Bee Quest, and The Otter's Tale were brilliant.
