What the community says about Queen Isabella: Treachery, Adultery, and Murder in Medieval England
- "I admit that I do not know many of the English queens. I have heard of a few, but I had not heard much about Isabella. This book is among the best medieval nonfiction books I have read. It held my interest through out and that is not easy to do when I am not a fan of the genre."
- "With royal weddings coming pretty frequently of late, interest in all things Royal Families are on the rise. Accordingly, this book caught my eye. Isabella isn't one of the more well known English queens, but that just made it more interesting to me. Set around the Dark Ages, this book tells of Isabella's life as England began to take the first basic steps toward the England that would become a little more familiar to those of us who look at history with the lens of reflection.""It's not easy being green or queen. Just ask 14th century Isabella. A strong woman at a time when women usually took a back seat to men, she eventually took control of her life and left a lasting impact. Strong story, but could have used some editing to make it shorter and more to the point."
- "In today's male dominated world how much do we know about the women who shaped our world too? Well, look no further than this amazing piece by Alison weir. I was mesmerized and entertained by her depiction of Queen Isabella of England in Queen Isabella: Treachery, Adultery, and Murder in Medieval England. I didn't know anything about Isabella before reading this but now see that there were very influential women all the way back to the fourteenth century! Weir really hits it home with this personal bio-epic piece about the Queen, giving us details and an inside look into her life we wouldn't find elsewhere. If you're a history buff like me and also a feminist, this one is not to pass up!"
