Description

A True Book: Queens and Princess tells the stories of women who were born or married into royalty. Who were these women who ruled nations and kingdoms and touched the lives of their people?

Being a queen or princess is more than sitting on a throne. A True Book: Queens and Princess tells the stories of women who were born or married into royalty. Who were these women who ruled nations and kingdoms and touched the lives of their people? They led sensational and sometimes luxurious lives. They also made sacrifices. They impacted war and peace, politics and economics, culture and tradition. These queens and princesses were so much more than their bejeweled crowns!With engaging text, primary source material, infographics, photography, and artwork, Queens and Princesses follows these vibrant women from childhood to the end of their reign. Long a source of fascination, Queens and Princesses introduces royals from the ancient world to contemporary times...all of whom influenced their era and left a compelling legacy.What's a woman to do when she is a pawn in her father, King Henry VIII's, court? Triumph over her half-siblings and cousins to take the throne! Queen Elizabeth I ruled England for 44 years. Never marrying, and protecting her birthright, Elizabeth was a beloved royal to a nation struggling with war, politics, and religious strife. Her legacy of ushering in great prosperity and cultural enlightenment gave her legendary status.
