Elizabeth was often portrayed as manipulative and self-centered. How does this compare to other portrayals we have seen in movies or read in other books (fiction or non-fiction)? Does it ring true?

I thought the portrayal was interesting. She was bolder than I had seen her portrayed before and more reckless. Her actions with Thomas Seymour were very dangerous. I was wondering if it didn't actually matter whether or not she was a virgin but only that she could claim to be. And no one would want to deny her virginity. Sometimes historical novels leave facts ambiguous. This novel didn't hedge when describing
