The relationship between the young Elizabeth I and the dashing but married Lord Robert Dudley is the most extraordinary and controversial of royal love affairs. Whether the self-styled Virgin Queen and Robert, the son and grandson of traitors, slept together or not was a pre-occupation of the court and their open flirtation, whether or not it was consummated, very nearly cost Elizabeth the crown.
As a bestselling historian, Alison Weir has her own theories about Elizabeth's motivations and intentions. In THE MARRIAGE GAME she brings all her knowledge of this captivating, tempestuous young woman to vivid life in a novel of intrigues, sex, plots, mysteries and tragedies with all the colour and pageantry of the Tudor court.
