Summary
England's medieval queens were elemental in shaping the historyof the nation. In an age where all politics were family politics,dynastic marriages placed English queens at the very center ofpower--the king's bed. From Matilda of Flanders, William the Conqueror's queen, to Elizabeth of York, the first Tudor consort, England's queens fashioned the nature of monarchy and influenced the direction of the state. Occupying a unique positionin the mercurial, often violent world of medieval politics, these queens had to negotiate a role that combined tremendous influence with terrifying vulnerability. Describes the lives of 20 women who were crowned queen of England between 1066 and 1503, exploring every facet of the position, from patronage, learning and fashion to war, adultery, witchcraft, murder-- and occasionally love
