Hello, great site!
I've looked all over, and no one seems to have addressed this on here, so I thought I'd go ahead...
My first real introduction to Tudor history was reading the book "I, Elizabeth" by Rosalind Miles years ago. Obviously, it's a work of fiction, and I know for a fact that there are invented episodes within it.
However, overall, what is your opinion on its historicity? I know several authors' works have been lambasted for taking too many liberties with history, but as far as I could see, this one seems to be pretty faithful to the historical narrative as we know it.
I was incredibly amused when I watched "Elizabeth R" and recognized a lot of the dialogue from reading "I, Elizabeth", and then found that quite a lot of the dialogue in both had been taken from contemporary accounts and/or letters.
Any thoughts, opinions?
