Leanda de Lisle

Tudor_Book_CoverElizabeth I’s rivalry with her Catholic cousin Mary, Queen of Scots is well known. But for her first ten years as queen she feared her Protestant rivals and cousins still more. The story of the Nine Days queen, Lady Jane Grey and her forgotten sisters, the true heirs, reveal a queen very different from the Elizabeth of legend.

‘Leanda de Lisle brings the story of nine days’ queen, Lady Jane Grey and her forgotten sisters, the rivals of Elizabeth I, to vivid life in her fascinating biography’ – Philippa Gregory

Leanda is the author of several history books including Tudor, which was listed as a top ten bestseller. She is also writes on matters historical and review books for a number of publications including BBC History magazine, History Today, the Literary Review, the New Criterion and the Spectator, as well as national newspapers.

MTrumpetusician Chris Parsons from Eboracum Baroque will be performing some trumpet fanfares to set the scene for this fascinating talk about the Tudor court.
