Susan Doran argues that the cult of the Virgin Queen was invented by her ministers, and that Elizabeth was forced into celibacy by political necessity.Dorans detailed examination of the different suits is based on extensive archival research across Europe. Rather than focusing on Elizabeths personality and image, she views the question within a wider political and religious context.

She shows how the question of Elizabeths marriage was divisive for England, affecting both political life and international relations, and provoking popular propaganda in the form of plays, poetry and paintings.
