Review by MichelleCH
Beautiful photos and history of Queen Elizabeth through her life. Most impressive section was on the Elizabethan architecture that was developed during her reign and the fantastic castles built in her honor. The portraits of Elizabeth are also the closest approximations that I have yet seen.
