SHE WOLVES - Jane, Mary & Elizabeth DVD - In this series as broadcast on BBC4 Cambridge University historian Dr Helen Castor explores seven queens who challenged male power, the fierce reactions they provoked and whether the term she wolves was deserved.Helen Castor looks at what happened when England was faced not just with inadequate kings, but no kings at all. In 1553, for the first time in English history all the contenders for the crown were female. In the lives of these three Tudor queens - Jane, Mary and Elizabeth - she explores how each woman struggled in turn with wearing a crown that was made for a male head. Elizabeth I seemed to show that not only could a woman rule, but could do so gloriously. But at what cost? LITTLE BOOK OF ENGLAND S KINGS & QUEENS - Little Book of Kings & Queens of England presents the story of every monarch to have ruled the country from King Egbert in the 9th century to our reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. This essential guide contains mini-biographies of each sovereign alongside key dates and achievements during their reign. Our regal journey takes us through all the Royal houses - Norman, Angevin, Plantagenet, Lancaster, York, Tudor, Stuart, Orange, Hanover, Saxe- Coburg and Windsor and comes right up date with the birth of Prince George in 2013. A special entry is reserved for Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning British monarch since Queen Victoria, who celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and is still held in great esteem and affection by her people... unlike some of her ancestors in this book!
