Tudor Times Insights: Sir William Cecil, Elizabeth I's Chief Minister £4.00

Sorry, this combination has sold out.


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.
