9780006473398: Myself My Enemy (Queens of England Series)

A new title for the ever-popular ‘Queens of England’ series, this is the story of Henrietta Maria, wife of the doomed Charles I.

The betrothal of Henrietta Maria, daughter of the murdered King of France, and King Charles I of England, was the beginning of one of the greatest royal love stories of all. Fiercely loyal in love, impetuously ruthless in hatred, she stood beside her husband throughout his doomed reign, as together they watched the fall of their supporters and the rise of Cromwell, unaware even of the spies in their own household.

And so came the inevitable march towards war, Englishman against Englishman, Cavalier against Roundhead, the tragic sequel to which was played out on a cold January day in Whitehall, when the English executed their King. Afterwards, and even when her son Charles II had restored the fortunes of the monarchy, the warm-hearted, passionate Henrietta Maria would still ask herself, ‘How much was I to blame?’
