[ Pdf The Sultan and the Queen: The Untold Story of Elizabeth and Islam ¸ north-american-history PDF ] by Jerry Brotton Ü Unfortunately the presentation of the book did not meet my expectation I had no idea that it would arrive without the cover slip As it is I cannot give it as a present I already bought and read the book in the USA, I was hoping to get a copy for a friend in the UK Well, that was money wasted The condition of the book was not that great either In the 1580 s Queen Elizabeth I signed commercial agreements with the Ottomans that would last over 300 years, granting British merchants free commercial access to Ottoman lands.
With these agreements English taste sugar,silks,carpets and spices had been changed and Britain established a new model for joint stock investment that would lead eventually finance Virginia Company which founded the first settlement in North America in early 17th Century.
The first Company was Muscovy Company which traded with Persia, and went on to inspire the formation of Turkey Company which traded with Ottomans,and the East India Company which would eventually conquer India.
This book is one of the best book I have read recently read and discover about what happened in the late 16.
Century in Shakespeare s England Queen Mary Bloody Mary her Spanish husband Philip and the excommunication of Elizabeth by Pope Book arrived quickly, and brand new Very happy.

The story told in this book is one of a largely unknown connection between England and the Islamic world, one that emerged out of a very specific set of circumstances during the European reformation Pg 299 For economic and military reasons, in the wake of the Queen s excommunication in 1570, Elizabethan England sought to develop ties with the Ottoman empire, Persia, and Morocco The author effectively makes us realize that, not only was the Queen in mortal jeopardy of an invasion by Spain the Holy Roman Empire and possibly France, as is well known, but, in that pre Armada era, England lay on the fringe of the known world, as was regarded as a largely peripheral player by the Mediterranean encircling trading and naval Book ReviewThis worthy and resourceful author, in his fascinating book, only slips a few times He refers to the Turks as Tartars when this term was commonly applied to Mongols, such as those with settlement rights, granted by the Ottoman sultan, in the Crimea on the Black Sea.
He makes mention of the Middle Kingdom without clarifying the association of this term with China He uses the expression Saracens to mean Muslims without explaining its origins as a reference to tent dwellers on the Steppes, not only Turkic clans but Scythians and Sarmatians as well, in fact despised in Constantinople from the time of the first crusade in the eleventh century, long before the Ottoman conquest of the capital of Byzantium, as described by Anna Komnene in her Alexiad He refers to Iznik pottery, indeed, as the author points out, made in Bursa, for close to a century the O The Sultan and the Queen is a very interesting book describing the interactions between the court of Elizabeth I and three Muslim States, i.
e.
, the Ottoman Empire, Persia and Morocco.
At the time of Elizabeth I, England was just a tiny island that was pretty much isolated from the rest of Europe For this rebellious Protestant island, establishing closer relationships with Muslim powers was a way to survive politically and economically Brotton s book includes very well documented descriptions of the circumstances and events that led to the first commercial, diplomatic and military contacts between England and the leading Muslim powers According to Brotton s account, the fate of England was in the hands of a few individuals Driven by their desire to explore unknown
