Book Summary

Penelope Devereux was the most beautiful woman of her generation and muse to countless poets and musicians, yet her story ended in tragedy: she died in disgrace on July 7th, 1607, a widow, outcast from court, and stripped of all her titles.

The biography charts Penelope's rise and fall, over a court career that spanned great events from the execution of Mary Queen of Scots to the Gunpowder Plot. The Lady Penelope is a dramatic, visual, emotional and ultimately tragic tale set against the character of Queen Elizabeth I and the staged pageantry of her Court.
