Queen Elizabeth I: A Biography of A Very Important Queen in World History (The People's Queen of England) (Fascinating World History Episodes Book 10)

by History-Episode

A Complete Biography of Queen Elizabeth I – A Very Important Queen in World HistoryFrom the moment she was conceived, Queen Elizabeth I of England was the subject of controversy. The daughter of King Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth was accused of being illegitimate by English Catholics before she was even born, as they refused to acknowledge the annulment of Henry's first marriage. Elizabeth's childhood was tumultuous, as her mother was executed when she was two and a half years old, and she was raised as Henry's daughter but not Henry's heir.Elizabeth became Queen in 1558, succeeding her half-sister Mary Tudor to the throne. Elizabeth refused to marry immediately and rule as co-regent with her husband, as Mary had done, and her decision to remain single and rule al...

by Claire Hilton

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book tells the story of Barbara Robb and her pressure group, Aid for the Elderly in Government Institutions (AEGIS). In 1965, Barbara visited 73-year-old Amy Gibbs in a dilapidated and overcrowded National Health Service psychiatric hospital back-ward.

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

This gives her book a distinct.value." — Westminster Gazette"Mrs. Tooley's 'Memoirs' are a brightly written popular account, which will appeal at once to all classes and ages of loyal subjects.

The Governor of England

by Marjorie Bowen

Oliver Cromwell was first and foremost an English soldier.

But he was also a statesman of outstanding gifts and a forceful character, becoming Lord Protector of the Republican Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1653 to 1658.

One of the leading generals on the parliamentary side in the English Civil War against King Charles I, he was indispensable in the campaign to the overthrow of the Stuart monarchy.

In his position as Lord Protector, he raised his country’s status back to being one of leading European power, something it had not experienced since the death of Queen Elizabeth I.

Cromwell was one of the most remarkable rulers in European history; he believed deeply in the value of religious toleration.
