By the time Elizabeth I was crowned Queen of England at the age of 25, she had already lived through her mother’s execution, four stepmothers and her own imprisonment.
She was known as the Virgin Queen and never married, despite warnings from her advisors that she wouldn’t succeed without a husband. Elizabeth’s 44-year reign proved them wrong. Carole Levin discusses how this 16th-century woman successfully ruled alone during a time of religious strife and foreign threats.
All tickets for the roundtable lunch discussion with Carole Levin are sold out. Tickets may still be purchased for the lecture only.
Carole Levin, professor of history and director of the Medieval and Renaissance studies program at the University of Nebraska, is the author of The Heart and Stomach of a King: Elizabeth I and the Politics of Sex and Power, The Reign of Elizabeth I and Dreaming the English Renaissance.
