9780297852612: Queens Consort: England's Medieval Queens

Occupying a unique position in the mercurial, often violent world of medieval state-craft, England’s medieval queens were elemental in shaping the history of the monarchy and the nation. Lisa Hilton’s meticulously researched new work explores the lives of the 20 women crowned between 1066 and 1503. She reconsiders the fictions surrounding well-known figures like Eleanor of Aquitaine, illuminates the lives of forgotten queens such as Adeliza of Louvain, and shows why they all had to negotiate a role that combined tremendous influence with terrifying vulnerability. The result is a provocative and dramatic narrative that redefines English history.

Review :

"a highly readable book. it has a good story to tell" -- Michael Prestwich BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE Critic's Choice: "a procession of Mathildas, Isabelles, Elizabeths and Eleanors who were, as Hilton shows, more than mere corollaries of their husbands" -- Lucy Moore DAILY MAIL "Reading this stimulating pageant of a book. one frequently shudders at the fate of women in bygone ages" -- Antonia Fraser MAIL ON SUNDAY "a fascinating read" CHOICE "as Hilton displays so effectively through the depth of her research, no two queens were the same. a fascinating read" -- Mary Fitzgerald NEW STATESMAN "why should the men get all the credit? Hilton redresses the imbalance in this absorbing study of 20 queens" TATLER "Lisa Hilton's corrective Queens Consort illuminates these 20 lives." -- Helen Brown DAILY TELEGRAPH "Juicy tome exploring what it really meant to be married to a medieval king" EASY LIVING "A treasure trove of little-known facts, this book provides us with a more rounded picture of English history" -- David McLaurin THE TABLET "the women's stories are meticulously and confidently written. definitely worth a read" -- Sheefa Shiraz FAMILY HISTORY MAGAZINE "the author convincingly demonstrates that these women were more than merely pawns, and that many of them were exceptional women in their own right" GOOD BOOK GUIDE
