Oxford: Son of Queen Elizabeth I

Oxford Institute Press

This book argues two very controversial positions. First, that Queen Elizabeth (the Virgin Queen) had a child in July 1548 when she was fourteen, and second, that this child was raised as Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, better known to the world by the pen name of "William Shakespeare."

The book advances the growing notion that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford was Shakespeare by showing those biographical parallels between Oxford and the body of work known as the Shakespeare canon. It further states that Shakespeare/Oxford's body of work was much larger than previously supposed, including Ovid Metamorphoses credited to Arthur Golding and Romeus and Juliet, credited to an illusive Arthur Brooke. The book also includes a new poem When Silly Bees Could Speake, which it asserts is a poem by William Shakespeare.

The book is a direct challenge to two traditions of English history: The Virgin Queen and the Bard of Stratford-upon-Avon.
