Here is the first full-length biography of a much maligned but astonishingly colourful Queen of England.

In Newgate Street, in the city of London, stand the meagre ruins of Christ Church. On the same site once stood a royal mausoleum set to rival Westminster Abbey in the 14th century. Among the many crowned heads buried there was Isabella of France, Edward II's queen - one of the most notorious femme fatales in history. But how did she acquire her evil reputation? And is it justified? Alison Weir's engrossing biography sets out to put the record straight. Download and start listening now!

    " When I read for pleasure, I rarely pick up non-fiction, but this one was worth my time. This is painstakingly researched and I am sure there is no more that can be written about Queen Isabella. Weir has documented even the smallest details - like how much she spent on her household and how many times she traveled to the shrine of St. Thomas a'Becket (22). Along with Isabella, there is more information on her husband, Edward II, renowned not only for his bad reign, but for his ignominious death. Weir's conclusions and her proof of what actually happened are compelling. It's nice to know that Isabella, though avaricious and powerful, wasn't as bad as what everyone less informed seems to think. Enjoyed the book, learned a lot. "

    " I found this book exceptionally in depth and extremely interesting. Love reading about medieval women who broke the mold! "

    " A multi-sided view of the reputed She-Wolf of England. I like that she actually gives facts and doesn't always rely on books written on her by Victorian idealistic writers or take the words of a male of period with total trust. She looked things up, and researched the thing. I like it much. "

    " Well written. Isabella is the most maligned of the English Queen Consorts. This book implies that that may not be fair. In my opinion, this book seems to be a generally fair assessment of her life. We often times judge things that happened years ago against the light of modern times and that is not OK. She was a really incredible woman in the time that she lived. My primary complaint is in regard to referencing people by their titles as well as their given names...I have a hard time keeping them all in line and would prefer that authors use one or the other.
