Anna Beer

From the Throne to the Tower

Sir Walter Ralegh lived a life of courtly power but died in ignominy. His legacy remains contested 400 years later. Today, self-declared Ralegh groupie Anna Beer, a visiting fellow at Oxford University, introduces Patriot or Traitor: The Life and Death of Sir Walter Ralegh, her new biography on one of English history’s most charismatic figures. Is it a portrait of a betrayed visionary, or a master charlatan?
