Join us for an evening in conversation with Nicola Tallis, author of Elizabeth’s Rival: The Tumultuous Tale of Lettice Knollys, Countess of Leicester.
Elizabeth’s Rival is the first-ever biography of one of the most prominent women of the Elizabethan era, known as the Queen’s nemesis. It tells the dramatic story of Lettice’s love triangle with Robert Dudley and Elizabeth I, which resulted in Lettice being banished from court, embroiled in treason and at the centre of scandal. Cousin to the Queen and grandniece to Anne Boleyn, Lettice had a life of dizzying highs and pitiful lows. She lived to the age of ninety-one, from the reign of Henry VIII through to Charles I – her tale gives us a remarkable, personal lens on to the grand sweep of the Tudor Age.
As a historian and researcher, Nicola has worked with many great writers including Alison Weir and Sir Ranulph Fiennes, and has previously lectured at the University of Winchester and worked with Historic Royal Palaces and the National Trust. She’s incredibly passionate about making history accessible to all.
