Summary King James I is looking to expand England's influence in Europe, especially among the Protestants. He invites Prince Frederic of the Palatinate to London and offers him his sixteen-year-old daughter Elizabeth's hand in marriage. Fierce and intelligent, Elizabeth moves to Heidelberg Castle and the couple begins their family. Amid much turmoil, the Hapsburg emperor is weakened, and with help from Bohemian rebels, Frederic takes over royal duties in Prague. Elizabeth becomes the Queen of Bohemia, but within a year Frederic, Elizabeth, and their children are forced into exile for a much-reduced life in The Hague. -- adapted from back cover
