Strickland, Agnes (18061874)

Strickland, Agnes, biographer of the queens of England, born at Roydon Hall, near Southwold, Suffolk; had already published poems and some minor works before she conceived the plan of writing a series of biographies of the queens of England; these appeared in 12 vols. during 1840-1848, and such was their popularity that a similar work dealing with the queens of Scotland was immediately undertaken; was aided in these by her sister Elizabeth (1794-1875); was the author of various other works, “Lives of the Seven Bishops,” “Bachelor Kings of England,” &c.; her writings are of no value as history, but are full of entertaining details (18061874).
