Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon–the ninth of the Earl of Strathmore’s ten kids–has been born August 4, 1900, and, certainly, nobody might have imagined her long life (she died in 2002) would return to signify a changing country within an whole century. Vividly detailed, composed of unrestricted use of her private papers, letters, and diaries, this candid imperial biography by William Shawcross is also a singular history of Britain in the twentieth century.
