Product Description

This is the tale of two men and their Queen. For them, she represents England, their beloved country. On her behalf, they claim lands and riches from all over the known and unknown world. When Protestant England is under threat from Catholic Spain, both men must act to defend her…

Sir Francis Drake is known in the royal courts as a pirate and adventurer. His round-the-world voyage makes him the sovereign’s favourite, but will defeating the Spanish Armada be a challenge too far?

Handsome, proud and adored by his queen, Sir Walter Ralegh is frustrated by Elizabeth’s refusal to let him leave England’s shores. He is forced to stand and watch as Drake and others face the Armada. But as the battle gathers pace, he is determined to serve his Queen and country…

One great conflict. Two great stories.
