  Elizabeth I
Elizabeth was sent away from court, as she was a reminder to Henry of Anne.
Because Elizabeth was a daughter of the late King Henry VIII, she was in line to the throne (despite several attempts to remove her from the chain, she was in Henry's will as an heir) and was therefore a most sought-after bride.
Elizabeth died on March 24, 1603 at Richmond Palace and was succeeded by James I (James VI of Scotland), the son of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Elizabeth's early life is much less explored than her later life as the more recognisable face of the Virgin Queen.
In Elizabeth, David Starkey demonstrates that he deserves to be taken seriously as an academic, beyond his twin titles of “the rudest man in Britain” and “the highest paid man on television”.
The focus of much Tudor history is on either Henry VIII or Elizabeth’s reign – and it is a welcome change to find a high profile historian spending so much time on the intervening period.
