    From the publishers that brought you A Game of Thrones comes the series that inspired George R.R. Martin’s epic work. France became a great nation under Philip the Fair - but it was a greatness achieved at the expense of her people, for his was a reign characterised by violence, the scandalous adulteries of his daughters-in-law, and the triumph of royal authority.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Those interested in historical fiction and know/understand French.


    If you’ve listened to books by Maurice Druon before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first I've tried. I was curious because of an article on the BBC website that hinted that this series was an inspiration for the Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire) series.


    Any additional comments?

    I understand the book was originally written in French. However, the English version did not have some French phrases translated so there were a lot of things that you miss out on if you don't understand French.
