Elizabeth I revealed as secret scribe of historic manuscript

Source: BBC news online
Date: 29 November, 2019

A manuscript written by Queen Elizabeth I has been discovered after lying unnoticed for more than a century.

A literary historian from the University of East Anglia made the startling find in Lambeth Palace Library in London.

He turned detective to piece together a series of clues to establish that the queen was the author of the writings.

The work is a translation of a book in which the Roman historian Tacitus wrote of the benefits of monarchical rule.

If they look hard enough they will probably find evidence she invented the steam engine as well.

It's there in her name - 'The First'. She was the first to do this and that.

I dont know much about her, (She sounds a rum un).

What I have seen of her writing...well, its a movable feast, as one person described.

If she needs to, she has very nice writing, but for others her hand is so scruffy.

I can easily imagine that there are documents of hers unidentified.
