Synopsis

In this four-part Channel 4 series, historian David Starkey tells the remarkable life story of the Virgin Queen, who reigned England for more than 40 years. Elizabeth's childhood and adolescence were dramatic and fraught with dangers including a sexually abusive father, a sister who wanted her dead, and a father who had her mother killed. The survival instincts she developed in her early years would become invaluable later when she succeeded to the throne.
