Elizabeth II

Release date : 25/10/2018
Although Elizabeth II is the most famous woman in the world, she remains perhaps the least known, and even the least predictable. Jean des Cars recounts, in this first illustrated biography of “The Queen”, the life of the best-informed woman in the world, a true icon of the twentieth century.
~Respected, often adulated, Elizabeth seems to have reigned for

~Respected, often adulated, Elizabeth seems to have reigned for
time immemorial. While the British sovereign is the most famous
woman in the world, much about her remains secret and unknown.
Since 1952, she has always astonished her contemporaries,
evolving with her era while remaining the same to preserve
the monarchy of which she is the heir and the guarantor. She
embodies a universe that would be unimaginable without her,
without her obligatory hats, her de rigueur smile and her discreet
way of tapping her right foot in rhythm when a military band
parades in front of her.
Aged 92, the woman who was never meant to ascend to the
throne is now enjoying the longest reign of the British monarchy.
Drawing from the best sources, Jean des Cars plunges us into
the life of Elizabeth II, from her childhood to her accession to
the throne, through all the small and large episodes, public and
private, that have marked her life: A world war, the death of her
father, rumors about her marriage, the dissolute life of her sister,
the marital problems of her children, her relationship with her
reprobate uncle, not to mention her passion for her corgis and
horses... The master of European royalty invites us into the private
world of “The Queen”.
