Queenship and political discourse in the Elizabethan realms.

Mears, N. (2005) 'Queenship and political discourse in the Elizabethan realms.', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Cambridge studies in early modern British history.

Abstract

This book re-evaluates the nature of Elizabethan politics and Elizabeth's queenship in late sixteenth-century England, Wales and Ireland. Natalie Mears shows that Elizabeth took an active role in policy-making and suggests that Elizabethan politics has to be perceived in terms of personal relations between the queen and her advisors rather than of the hegemony of the privy council. She challenges current perceptions of political debate at court as restricted and integrates recent research on court drama and religious ritual into the wider context of political debate.
