Dr Elizabeth Norton is one of the experts speaking at my online event “Elizabeth I: The Life of Gloriana, the Virgin Queen” which starts in just 7 days!
Elizabeth will be talking to us about the Elizabeth and Thomas Seymour scandal, the subject of her book “The Temptation of Elizabeth Tudor” and something which has been brought to life recently in the Starz series “Becoming Elizabeth”.
Elizabeth will explore what we know about Thomas Seymour and Elizabeth in 1547 and 1548, what we know about Elizabeth’s relationship with Thomas Seymour, and whether Seymour sexually abused her and wanted to marry her. It will be a fascinating talk and Elizabeth will also be participating in a Q&A session with us.
Elizabeth’s talk will go live on the event site on 7th September.
