Book Details

Medieval queens were seen as mere dynastic trophies yet, as Alison Weir shows in this group biography, many of the Plantagenet queens of the High Middle Ages dramatically broke away from the restrictions imposed on their sex. Using personal letters and fascinating sources, Weir evokes the lives of these five extraordinary women- Marguerite of France, Isabella of France, Philippa of Hainault, Anne of Bohemia and Isabella of Valois. At the same time, she recreates a truly astonishing period of history, the turbulent, brutal Age of Chivalry.
