The Virgin Queen by Christopher Hibbert

Since I’ve agreed to play Elizabeth I on Renaissance Island in Second Life as needed, I decided I should read a biography about her.  I selected The Virgin Queen:  Elizabeth I, Genius of the Golden Age (Cambridge, MA:  Perseus Books, 1991) by Christopher Hibbert.

From reading Hibbert’s book, I reached the conclusion that Elizabeth I was self-centered, emotional unstable, and indecisive–not a genius.  It’s amazing that England survived her reign as well as it did.
