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.
