    Kate Hubbard examines Bess of Hardwick's life as a businesswoman within the context of the male-dominated Elizabethan architectural world. 

    Bess of Hardwick was one of the wealthiest and most powerful women of her time, next to Queen Elizabeth I, with her houses and land being indicators of her rise to wealth and power.

    Together with her second husband, Sir William Cavendish, Bess bought Chatsworth manor in 1549, and in 1552 began to build the first house on the site; This is one of the many innovative and magnificent builds of Bess of Hardwick which still remain today.
