Event description

Description

The life stories of England’s medieval queens are vivid and stirring, packed with human interest, high drama, tragedy and turbulence. Love, hate, ambition and mystery – they are all part of this monumental saga. In this, the first of four books in the series, Alison Weir looks at the lives of five Norman queens, from Matilda of Flanders, who supported William the Conqueror in his invasion of England in 1066, to the turbulent Empress Maud, who fought a bitter war with her cousin King Stephen, and founded the Plantagenet dynasty as the mother of Henry II. Stripping away centuries of romantic mythology and legends, and delving beyond the prejudice and credulity in contemporary sources, Alison will reveal a more balanced and authentic picture of these extraordinary women.
