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?
Would you try another book from Alison Weir and/or Lisette Lecat?
I have read other books by Alison Weir however this one is more a list of dates rather than a story about the Queen of England.
Has Isabella turned you off from other books in this genre?
Which character – as performed by Lisette Lecat – was your favorite?
No characters were performed. Just a list of dates with what has been documented or conjecture from other authors.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Isabella?
