A major historical biography: the dramatic, harrowing and contested story of Sir Walter Ralegh Visionary or charlatan? Toy boy or Renaissance man? Sexual predator or devoted family figure? Patriot or traitor? Ralegh biographer Anna Beer sheds light on the contested final days of one of the most famous figures from English history. Sir Walter Ralegh's life is romantic, irresistible, and of central importance to our island story. His death is a convoluted and contested tale of bargaining, failure and betrayal. Through the Elizabethan golden age and Ralegh's famous adventures to the final act, Anna Beer presents his stranger-than-fiction life in all its richness. How could a man once the Queen's favorite find himself consigned to the Tower by her successor? Should his legacy be fame or infamy? Who was the real Sir Walter Ralegh?
