Elizabeth in the Garden PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Elizabeth in the Garden free pdf Lord Robert Dudley and Sir William Cecil were the most powerful men in sixteenth-century England - and rivals for the heart and patronage of their queen. At Kenilworth, Dudley created an intoxicatingly romantic garden, with an Italianate fountain and terrace, bowers of bliss and lovers' walks. Cecil responded by transforming his house at Theobalds into an auxiliary royal palace, with two-mile-long walks and gardens overseen by the legendary John Gerard. Dudley's aim was to woo Elizabeth- Cecil's, too stop Dudley in his tracks. For Elizabeth, gardens were places for romantic adventures and entanglements, for a freedom that could take place nowhere else. But if these lavish creations were designed to enchant her, ultimately these gardens ensnared them all.
