9780099578390: Isabella: She-Wolf of France, Queen of England

Described by Christopher Marlowe as the 'She-Wolf of France', Isabella was one of the most notorious femme fatales in history. According to popular legend, her angry ghost can be glimpsed among church ruins, clutching the beating heart of her murdered husband. But how did Isabella aquire this reputation?

Born in 1292 she married Edward II of England but was constantly humiliated by his relationships with male favourites and she lived adulterously with Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March. Had it not been for her unfaithfulness, history might have immortalised her as a liberator- the saviour who unshackled England from a weak and vicious monarch.

Dramatic and startling this first full-length biography of Isabella will change the way we think of her and her world forever.

Review:

"This meticulous no-nonsense biography presents a fascinating story complete with puzzles" (Marianne Brace Independent on Sunday)

"A beautifully nuanced portrait of a fascinating lady... gives a vivid sense of the riotous realpolitik of medieval times" ( Scotsman)

"This is history which reads like a novel. Weir writes lucidly, with an eye for the details which bring the period to life" (Christopher Hudson Daily Mail)

From the Publisher:

The first full-length biography of a much maligned - but astonishingly colourful - Queen of England.
