Ed, would you be willing and able to post a brief suggested reading list from the materials you're using for Virgin Queen?

Seconded!

I just picked up Defenders of the Faith to supplement my love of Here I Stand.

1 picture is worth 1,000 words. Here, then, is a picture of the books Ed Beach bought for his design of Virgin Queen...

I only have read a few of those - that will keep me busy for a while.

I can also recommend Jonathan Israels The Dutch Republic: Its Rise, Greatness, and Fall 1477-1806. Probably the best english account I have read of the revolt.

Lisa Jardine's The Awful End of Prince William the Silent: The First Assassination of a Head of State with a Handgun is also a good read. Much smaller and a limited topic but it gives a great flavour of the era. Specially since I heard that there is a espionage subsystem.

A pic of my friend's top shelf, AKA "Why she WON'T be playing the power of Phillip II".
