PortraitDavid Loades is Honorary Research Professor at the University of Sheffield. His previous publications include 'The Tudor Court' (1992) and 'Elizabeth I' (2003).
Pressestimmen'This is a penetrating and colourful study of the mid-Tudor Court. Loades has responded to both the revived interest in Edwardian and Marian politics and the current fascination with the Court to explore and demonstrate the role of the royal home as a political arena and the heart of government. He also provides fresh, stimulating and important assessments of Philip, Elizabeth and other focal figures.' Michael Graves, University of Auckland '...an excellent survey of the most difficult period of Tudor history.' '...well worth reading for those with an interest in Tudor England, or more broadly, Renaissance monarchy in Europe.' Victoria Stater, American Historical Review, February 2006
