Tudor Times Insights: Sir William Cecil, Elizabeth I's Chief Minister £4.00
Sir William Cecil, Lord Burghley was at Elizabeth I's side from the day she became Queen until his death forty years later. During that period they worked closely together - not always agreeing on policy, but with mutual trust and confidence. At the heart of Burghley's policy was the ambition to forge a Protestant state, preferably linking England and Scotland to stand against Catholic Europe. But politics weren't his only passion, he also had a vast array of other interests, including architecture, maps, books and his family.
Tudor Times Insights are short but comprehensive introductions to Tudor and Stewart personalities.
