The official and definitive biography of Queen Elizabeth theQueen Mother: consort of King George VI, mother of Queen ElizabethII, grandmother of Prince Charles, and the most beloved Britishmonarch of the twentieth century.

Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon—the ninth of the Earl ofStrathmore’s ten children—was born on August 4, 1900, and,certainly, no one could have imagined that her long life (she diedin 2002) would come to reflect a changing nation over the course ofan entire century. Vividly detailed, written with unrestrictedaccess to her personal papers, letters, and diaries, this candidroyal biography by William Shawcross is also a singular history o  in the twentieth century.
