Elizabeth Longford

Elizabeth Longford, 1906–2002, was 'one of the finest British biographers of the last century'.  She wrote highly acclaimed biographies of the Duke of Wellington (still regarded as definitive) Queen Victoria, the present Queen, and Byron, among others, continuing to write well into her 90s. Five of her children became writers: the journalist Catherine Longford, the novelist Rachel Billington, the biographer Antonia Fraser, the poet Judith Kazantzis, and the historian Thomas Pakenham. The Elizabeth Longford Prize for Historical Biography was established in 2003 in her memory.
