In the first of four books in a series on England’s medieval queens, Alison Weir tells the dramatic story of five Norman queens. She explorers the stories of Matilda of Flanders, who supported William the Conqueror in his invasion of England in 1066, to the turbulent Empress Maud (also known as Matilda), who fought a bitter war with her cousin King Stephen, and founded the Plantagenet dynasty in the 12th century as the mother of Henry II. Love, hate, ambition and tragedy all feature in this epic saga. Stripping away centuries of romantic mythology and legends, and delving beneath the prejudice and credulity of many contemporary sources, Alison reveals a more balanced and authentic picture of these extraordinary women.
