By: David Scott Gehring (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Challenging accepted notions of Elizabethan foreign policy, Gehring argues that the Queena (TM)s relationship with the Protestant Princes of the Holy Roman Empire was more of a success than has been previously thought. Based on extensive archival research, he contends that the enthusiastic and continual correspondence and diplomatic engagement between Elizabeth and these Protestant allies demonstrate a deeply held sympathy between the English Church and State and those of Germany and Denmark.
David Gehring is Assistant Professor of Early Modern English History at the University of Nottingham
