Elizabeth came to the throne in 1558 a 25-year-old virgin - the most prized catch in Christendom. Instead, the suspicious circumstances surrounding Amy Robsart' s death would cast a long shadow over Elizabeth' s life, preventing any hope of a union with Dudley and ultimately shaping the course of Tudor history. Christopher Skidmore takes a fresh look at the familiar story of a queen with the stomach of a man, steadfastly refusing to marry for the sake of her realm, and reveals a very different picture: of a vulnerable young woman, in love with her suitor, Robert Dudley. For the first ten years of her reign, one matter dominated above all others: the question of who the queen was to marry and when she would produce an heir. Elizabeth' s life as England' s Virgin Queen is one of the most celebrated in history. Had it not been for the mysterious and untimely death of his wife, Amy Robsart, Elizabeth might have one day been able to marry Dudley, since Amy was believed to be dying of breast cancer. Using newly discovered evidence from the archives, Christopher Skidmore is able to put an end to centuries of speculation as to the true causes of her death.

А за ним раскинулась уютная площадь Place Clairefo ai e, украшенная статуей великой герцогини Шарлотты. Отсюда открывается живописный вид на собор. Торговая улица Rue de Fosse ведет к площади Гийома (Place Guillau-те II), прозванной «Кнюделер». Это слово означает узловатый пояс францисканских монахов, аббатство которых размещалось на этом месте вплоть до XIX в. В центре площади высится конная статуя Вильгельма II, который, благодаря личной унии, был и королем Нидерландов, и великим герцогом Люксембургским. В южной части площади находится здание муниципалитета - ратуша в стиле классицизма (1830). Маленький, украшенный изваянием лисицы, фонтан — напоминание о люксембургском поэте Мишеле Роданже, который перенес коллизии сатирической поэмы Гёте «Рейнеке-Лис» на Люксембургскую почву. Особый проход ведет отсюда к площади Парадов (Place d'Amies) О. Площадь эта, окруженная кольцом уличных кафе и ресторанов, является местом проведения всевозможных культурных мероприятий и центром общественной жизни. Летними вечерами в павильоне в центре площади часто проходят концерты. Рельеф на фасаде Cercle изображает передачу хартии вольности графиней Эрмезиндой горожанам в 1244г.

Cook), Bonnie (Chelse Swain), Lux (Kirsten Dunst), and Cecilia Lisbon (Hanna R. Hall) are the enigmas that fill the boys' dreams.

|The Litvinenko file: The True Story of a Death Foretold Macmillan Publishers Martin S. |
Litvinenko was the man who denounced murder and corruption in the Russian government, fled from the wrath of the Kremlin, came to London and took the shilling of Moscow' s avowed enemy. . . Now he was a martyr, condemned by foes unknown to an agonised death in a hospital bed thousands of miles from home. Martin Sixsmith draws on his long experience as the BBC' s Moscow correspondent, and contact with the key London-based Russians, to dissect Alexander Litvinenko' s murder. Myriad theories have been put forward since he died, but the story goes back to 2000 when hostilities were declared between the Kremlin and its political opponents. This is a war that has blown hot and cold for over six years; a war that has pitted some of Russia' s strongest, richest men against the most powerful president Russia has had since Josef Stalin. "The Litvinenko File" is a gripping, powerful inside account of a shocking act of murder, when Russia' s war with itself spilled over onto the streets of London and made the world take notice. On December 7th 2006, in a Highgate Cemetery drenched with London rain, a Russian was buried within a stone' s throw of the grave of Karl Marx.
|The Death Maze Transworld Publishers Ariana F. |
Rosamund Clifford, the mistress of King Henry II, has died an agonizing death by poison-and the king' s estranged queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, is the prime suspect. Henry suspects that Rosamund' s murder is probably the first move in Eleanor' s long-simmering plot to overthrow him. If Eleanor is guilty, the result could be civil war. The king must once again summon Adelia Aguilar, mistress of the art of death, to uncover the truth. Adelia is not happy to be called out of retirement. She has been living contentedly in the countryside, caring for her infant daughter, Allie. But Henry' s summons cannot be ignored, and Adelia must again join forces with the king' s trusted fixer, Rowley Picot, the Bishop of St. Albans, who is also her baby' s father. Adelia and Rowley travel to the murdered courtesan' s home, in a tower within a walled labyrinth-a strange and sinister place from the outside, but far more so on the inside, where a bizarre and gruesome discovery awaits them. But Adelia' s investigation is cut short by the appearance of Rosamund' s rival: Queen Eleanor. Adelia, Rowley, and the other members of her small party are taken captive by Eleanor' s henchmen and held in the nunnery of Godstow, where Eleanor is holed up for the winter with her band of mercenaries, awaiting the right moment to launch their rebellion.
