After Elizabeth

The Rise of James of Scotland and the Struggle for the Throne of England

Author: Leanda de Lisle

Publisher: Ballantine Books

ISBN: 9780307414472

Category: History

Page: 368

View: 6191

Many volumes have been written about the long reign of Elizabeth I. Now, for the first time, comes a brilliant new work that focuses on the critical year her reign ended, a time in which England lost its childless queen and a Machiavellian struggle ensued to find her successor. December 1602. After forty-four years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth is in decline. The formidable ruler whose motto is Semper eadem (I never change) has become a dithering old woman, missing teeth and wearing makeup half an inch thick. The kingdom has been weakened by the cost of war with Spain and the simmering discontent of both the rich and the poor. The stage has been set, at long last, for succession. But the Queen who famously never married has no heir. Elizabeth’s senior relative is James VI of Scotland, Protestant son of Elizabeth’s cousin Mary Queen of Scots. But as a foreigner and a Stuart, he is excluded from the throne under English law. The road to and beyond his coronation will be filled with conspiracy and duplicity, personal betrayals and political upheavals. Bringing history to thrilling life, Leanda de Lisle captures the time, place, and players as never before. As the Queen nears the end, we witness the scheming of her courtiers for the candidates of their choice; blood-soaked infighting among the Catholic clergy as they struggle to survive in the face of persecution; the widespread fear that civil war, invasion, or revolution will follow the monarch’s death; and the signs, portents, and ghosts that seem to mark her end. Here, too, are the surprising and, to some, dismaying results of James’s ascension: his continuation of Elizabeth’s persecution of Catholics, his desire to unite his two kingdoms into a new country called Britain, and the painful contrast between the pomp and finery of Elizabeth’s court and the begrimed quality of his own. Around the old queen and the new king, swirl a cast of unforgettable characters, including Arbella Stuart, James’s ambitious and lonely first cousin; his childish, spoiled rival for power, Sir Walter Raleigh, who plotted to overthrow the king; and Sir John Harrington, Elizabeth’s wily godson, who switched his loyalties to James long before the queen’s death. Courtesy of Leanda de Lisle’s keenly modern view of this tumultuous time, we are given intimate insights into of political power plays and psychological portraits relevant to our own era. After Elizabeth is a unique look at a pivotal year–and a dazzling debut for an exciting new historian. From the Hardcover edition.

The Early Stuarts

A Political History of England, 1603-1642

Author: Roger Lockyer

Publisher: Prentice Hall of Canada Limited

ISBN: N.A

Category: History

Page: 402

View: 2313

When Roger Lockyer's political history of the reigns of James I and Charles I, up to the outbreak of civil war in 1642, first appeared in 1989 it met with a general welcome for its calm, sensible, informed analysis of these eventful years; for its ease and clarity of style; and for its return to the writings and speeches of the time to understand, and animate, the issues that were of central importance to early Stuart Britain. Now, almost a decade on, Roger Lockyer has substantially reworked the entire book, tightening the structure, and updating and significantly expanding the text. There are new chapters on Scotland and Ireland, greatly strengthening the "British" dimension of the analysis; on the personal rule of Charles I; and a welcome new final chapter examining recent historiographical controversies, and reassessing our current understanding of the causes of the Civil War.

London Crowds in the Reign of Charles II

Propaganda and Politics from the Restoration Until the Exclusion Crisis

Author: Tim Harris

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9780521398459

Category: History

Page: 264

View: 6374

This study of the political attitudes of ordinary Londoners during the reign of Charles II examines not only the manifestations of public opinion - for example, riot and demonstration - but also the manner of its formation - religious experience, economic activity, and exposure to mass political propaganda. Professor Harris shows to be misleading the conventional view, that the whigs enjoyed the support of the London masses, and the tories were essentially anti-populist. Both sides had public support during the exclusion crisis, and this division stemmed from fundamental religious tensions within London political culture, dating back to 1660 and before. Attractively illustrated with polemical contemporary engravings, London Crowds demonstrates clearly the value of bringing together both high and low activity into a truly integrated social history of politics, and sheds important new light not just on urban agitation but on the nature of late-Stuart party conflict.

The Right to be King

The Succession to the Crown of England, 1603-1714

Author: Howard Nenner

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 1349129526

Category: History

Page: 343

View: 4097

This book examines the theory and practice of the English monarchical succession from the end of Elizabeth's reign to the accession of George I. Tracing the transition from an uncertain rule to a crown in the disposal of parliament, Nenner focuses on the major routes to the throne over the long seventeenth century: hereditary right, conquest, and election. It is a study of the competing principles of parliamentary sovereignty and fundamental law, and the ways in which tension between dynastic expectations and national needs were addressed and resolved.

This second edition introduces the causes of the Civil Wars through an examination of the different historical interpretations presented by historians since the outbreak of war itself. The author then moves on to consider the progression from crisis to conflict, analysing the relative importance of long-term problems and the personality of Charles I, and examining whether or not war was both unexpected and avoidable. The book looks at the impact of war, the reasons for parliamentary victory and its outcome in the execution of the king, before evaluating the conflict's significance for Britain as a whole. The updated study guides provide a firm basis for answering source-based and essay questions.

The character of that experiment and the legacy it left are the key themes of the book. Oliver Cromwell, an extraordinary man in an extraordinary situation, is the central figure. What he achieved and the controversies that continue to surround him receive close examination. In addition, the book analyses the remarkable social, economic and religious movements of this fascinating age, and casts light on the lives of the ordinary people as well as leading politicians. The updated study guides provide a firm basis for answering differentiated, source-based and extended-writing questions.
