Summary:

"This epic narrative history chronicles the first five queens from the powerful royal family that ruled England and France for over three hundred years. A recreation of the action-packed century that saw the murder of Thomas Becket and the signing of the Magna Carta, the book covers the lives and reigns of the first five Plantagenet queens, who ruled England and France throughout the bloody 1200s. The queens covered in the book are Eleanor of Aquitaine, Berengaria of Navarre, Isabella of Angouleme, Alienor of Provence and Eleanor of Castile. This second volume of historian Alison Weir's critically acclaimed Medieval Queens series brings these unfamiliar, fascinating royals to life, demonstrating how very much they resemble self-determining women of our own time"--
