Tudor and Elizabethan Biographical Fiction

Stories set in Tudor and Elizabethan times have never been more popular - and with so many bold, larger-than-life characters available, it’s easy to understand why. The love of adventure; the passion for invention; the irrepressible self-confidence among those living in that extraordinary era really is without rival.

Biographical fiction of this kind is also a great way to learn about real history.


If you enjoy reading about England’s Tudor dynasty, and in particular the life and times of Elizabeth I, here are two books set in the unique and turbulent era of the ‘Virgin Queen.’ The first is a full-length adventure novel, the other a fictional 'memoir' (a special blend of fact and fantasy).
