Elizabeth I: Woman and Girl, Princess and Queen, 3:00pm Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Two of Britain’s bestselling Tudor historians, Tracy Borman and Nicola Tallis, come together to discuss Elizabeth I as princess and as queen.

Before she was three years old Elizabeth had been both a princess and suffered the execution of her mother. After losing several stepmothers and then her father, the teenage Elizabeth was confronted with the predatory attentions of Sir Thomas Seymour.

She faced further jeopardy during the bloody reign of her half-sister Mary. Against all the odds Elizabeth succeeded to the throne and became one of the most celebrated monarchs in British history.
