The third volume in Alison Weir's magisterial history of the queens of medieval England

The third volume of Alison Weir's magisterial history of the queens of medieval England.

'Weir's history books are as gripping as novels' The Times

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.

'Places the reader in the midst of...complex, gripping events, telling the stories of five royal wives who lived through them' BBC History
