Elizabeth could see Lady Bryan watching them intently, standing a little way off with Mary’s ladies and the nursemaids, and she was puzzled as to why her governess did not hasten to her rescue.

So the book, while historical fiction, is based on fact-except for one event in Lady Elizabeth's life that is based on gossip. And it's a doozy! If it's true-and even Weir has significant doubts due to primarily circumstantial evidence-it totally changes the image of Elizabeth, widely considered one of England's greatest queens, if not THE greatest. Ms Weir weaves her story around basic historical facts: Elizabeth had a father who was alternately kindly and cruel. She saw him execute two wives and discard one-and she had two stepmothers die in childbirth. She saw her sister become a dreaded tyrant after an unloving marriage.

According to her jailer’s reports, her conduct has been impeccable lately, MoreLess Show More Show Less.
Alison Weir: When I began writing The Lady Elizabeth, I feared I was in some peril of writing a very similar book to Innocent Traitor, because Elizabeth Tudor and Jane Grey were young Tudor princesses, both dangerously near in blood to the throne. Both had difﬁcult childhoods and devoted nurses, both were incredibly intelligent and clever–being the products of a forward-thinking Renaissance education–and both were converts to the Protestant faith in an age of religious dogmatism in which heretics were burned at the stake.
