O'NEILL, Eoin. Gloriana's Inglorious Island: Elizabeth I, responsibility and honour in the Nine Years War in Ireland. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.68, pp.193-214. ISSN 1806-9347.

Elizabeth I still enjoys a very positive reputation, both in popular history and in the academic community. Unlike in England, her legacy in Ireland is very complex and far from glorious. Much of this legacy is related to the Nine Years War, which dominated the final decade of Elizabeth's reign. In this article I will focus on two aspects, in order to highlight Elizabeth's contribution to the war: first, her responsibility for the war itself, and second, her influence and interference in the waging of the war.

Keywords : Ireland; Nine Years War (1594-1603); Elizabeth I.
