Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart. On the Perils of Marriage

Dual biography investigates perennial question for any ambitious woman: to marry or not to marry. In this major double biography, Anka Muhlstein examines the turbulent relationship between Elizabeth I of England and Mary, Queen of Scots. Uniquely at this time, both of the thrones of the British Isles were held by women, which brought the issue of royal marriages to the fore.

The historian Anka Muhlstein has published several monographs, inculding one of cavelier de la Salle, James Rothschild and about the three 'Temporary Queens': Catherine de Medici, Maria de Medici and Anne of Austria. In 1996 she was awarded the Prix Goncourt.
