The Secret History of Elizabeth Tudor, Vampire Slayer as told to Lucy Weston:

When the long hidden secret journals of Elizabeth Tudor, Queen of England, first came into my hands, I was startled to discover that they contain many highly intimate revelations regarding Her Majesty’s private life. In my naivetĂ©--surprising, I know, in a being more than a century old--I imagined that the journals would contain insights into Elizabeth’s struggles to preserve her realm against enemies both mortal and immortal--and she does mention all that, if only in passing. But never did I anticipate that the “Virgin Queen”--as she is so inappropriately known--would speak so frankly about the startling sexual tangle in which she found herself.

It is well known that vampires are seductive, none more so than the king of the vampires himself, Mordred, with whom Elizabeth had so many and varied dealings. From the first moment they met, in a hidden walled garden on the night of Elizabeth’s coronation as Queen, through all their tumultuous encounters, the spark of desire never failed to burn brightly between them. Mordred tempted Elizabeth extravagantly, and not merely with his offer to gift her with eternal youth and beauty in return for her becoming his queen. The journals leave no doubt that there was a great deal more than that between them.

And then there was Robert Dudley--Robin, as Elizabeth called him. As a mortal, he could hardly hope to prevail against the vampire king. Yet it must be said, Robin acquitted himself quite well in the lists. (If by ‘lists’, you assume I mean the royal bed, you are not wrong). Mordred knew of Dudley, of course, and did his best to convince Elizabeth that her love-sick swain was in fact a toad, the son and grandson of traitors, who was merely using her to restore his family to power. Dudley responded by insisting that Mordred was the incarnation of evil and should not be allowed to touch so much as the hem of the royal robe, far less anywhere a good deal higher up. Clearly, the two of them could not be left in a room together.

In the end-at least of this first volume of her journals--Elizabeth was forced to choose between them. You may be as surprised as I was by the decision she made but, having considered it at length, I have no doubt that she acted wisely. Across the centuries, Elizabeth speaks as a woman of strength, courage, and it must be said, sensuality who lived life to the fullest. As such, she reigns still as an example to us all.
