- Elizabeth I: A Study in Insecurity
- The Great Hall
- Friday 5 October
In her talk, Helen will take a new look at England’s iconic Tudor queen to show how Elizabeth I’s life and reign were shaped by profound and enduring insecurity – an insecurity which was a matter of both practical political reality and deeply personal psychology.
Helen Castor is a medieval and Tudor historian, and a Bye-Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. She is the author of several acclaimed books including She-Wolves, Blood and Roses and Joan of Arc, and co-presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Making History.
