About the Authors
  • The English writer Agnes Strickland (1796–1874) began her career writing poetry and romances before turning to biographical studies of British royalty. This eight-volume series, written in collaboration with her sister Elizabeth, and first published between 1840 and 1849, was her most ambitious project. It provides biographical accounts of the queens of England from Matilda of Flanders, wife of William the Conqueror, to Queen Anne, the last monarch of the House of Stuart at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Hugely popular in the Victorian period, Lives of the Queens of England and its sequel Lives of the Queens of Scotland remain important landmarks in the development of biography as a genre, and provide interesting perspectives on women's contribution to modern historiography.
