A Crown for Elizabeth" by Mary M. Luke is an older book that is on Mary, Elizabeth and Edward during Edward and Mary's reigns. I enjoyed it, although there is nothing special about it. Although I have yet to read it, David Loades's biography on Mary is considered to be the best. there have been lots of books written on the priority of Mary Tudor, from the two facets of the story. confident Mary Tudor burned people she seen to be heretics, yet she wasn't the only one; look at her father Henry VIII - he had lots of individuals placed to dying because of the fact they did no longer agree together with his.

Queen Elizabeth I of England and Mary, Queen of Scots were two of the greatest, most legendary rivals in recorded history-although they never even met. In on. Their decades’ long verbal boxing match over the English crown would end with Mary’s beheading at Fotheringhay Castle-with Elizabeth’s blessing-in 1587. But the two cousins’ tortured relationship was determined long before, during childhoods so dissimilar and defining that they would inform both Queens’ characters-and seal Mary’s tragic fate.

This is, in my opinion, the strongest of Mary M. Luke's Tudor Trilogy. It doesn't speculate about people's thoughts and feelings too much like "Catherine, the Queen" did, and it is more smoothly written than "Gloriana: The Years of Elizabeth I." Though this book is called "A Crown For Elizabeth," what it's really about is the whole middle period of the Tudor Dynasty. The first third of the book is about the later part of Henry VIII's reign, starting from his divorce from Catharine of Aragon, the second third of the book is about Edward's reign, and the last third is about Mary's reign. Young Elizabeth features throughout, of course, and this is purportedly a book about everything that led up to Elizabeth's accession, but I don't think it has a special focus on Elizabeth. In fact, I think Luke is at her weakest when writing about Elizabeth.

Mary M. Luke portrays Edward as a very sensitive boy, in contrast to some Tudor historians who portray him as a cold, unfeeling boy. One really comes to feel sorry for him. It seems that ever since he became King, his life became miserable. One really feels sorry for him when one reads about how he died. I mean, he was basically tortured. Northumberland kept him alive and in agony until he signed the thing making Lady Jane Grey his successor.

Mary M. Luke also portrays Mary very sympathetically, as sympathetically as you can get without crossing into Catholic apologetic and distorting history.

condition as advertised. thank you

as with all ms luke's books, this one is very historically accurate and enjoyable reading. am reading all her books which are difficult to find as she wrote back in the 60's and 70's. i'm not sure when she published her last book, but I've been a fan for a long time. I highly recommend all her books for dedicated anglophile history buffs.

I was blessed to see how much my husband enjoyed this author, Mary Luke. I ordered another book by her and it arrived promptly and in very good condition. Thank you for making his birthday present so easy. Eloise
This book takes a rather casual tack with history -- putting likely thoughts into historical personage's minds -- but detailed and exacting footnotes reassure the reader that there is some scholarship to be had here. This book covers the history of the Tudor family from 1536 to 1558, from the death of Catherine of Aragon and the execution of Anne Bolyen to the ascention of her daughter Elizabeth I to the throne.
In those twenty-two years, England would have two kings, two queens, major shifts in religion and politics, five royal marriages, royal scandals beyond counting, births, deaths, literally hundreds of executions for heresy and treason, and in the middle of it all, a Princess fearing for her life, locked up in stone towers and seduced by a dashing rogue.
And it's all true!
(And what was so wrong with the Courtney information that one reviewer felt compelled to disclaim it twice?)
