Description

There are certain names which are familiar, as names, to all mankind; and every person who seeks for any degree of mental cultivation, feels desirous of informing himself of the leading outlines of their history, that he may know, in brief, what it was in their characters or their doings which has given them so widely-extended a fame. Consequently, great historical names alone are selected; and it has been the writer's aim to present the prominent and leading traits in their characters, and all the important events in their lives, in a bold and free manner, and yet in the plain and simple language which is so obviously required in works which aim at permanent and practical usefulness. This volume is dedicated to Queen Elizabeth.

    This was a great read. It's sad she never married her one true love of her life. How lonely she must have been. Elizabeth was a great woman.

    This book was a complete waste of time. There was nothing that I already did not know more about. Did the author even do his own research? Much is not even factual.
