Elizabeth’s Rival, written by British historian Nicola Tallis, is the first ever biography of the extraordinary Lettice Knollys, Countess of Leicester. Born into a prestigious family, Lettice had a life of dizzying highs and pitiful lows. Nicola will talk about the religious turmoil of the time – the plots and intrigues of Mary, Queen of Scots, attempted coups, and bloody Irish conflicts – through this biographical encounter with Elizabeth I’s kinswoman.
