Her Majesty's Spymaster: Elizabeth I, Sir Francis Walsingham, and the Birth of Modern Espionage
Defining alliances and enemies became overwhelmingly key to the success of England. Walsingham, a zealous Protestant, would develop a reputation as a persecutor of Catholics. Elizabeth read Latin and Greek; Mary did embroidery. But, like many who were adventurous even to the point of self-destruction, she had charisma and an ability to attract and inspire.
