Game of Queens: The Women Who Made Sixteenth-Century Europe

During the European Renaissance, women held no legitimate authority, yet many of the queens of sixteenth-century Europe— including Isabella of Castile, Catherine de Medici, Margaret Tudor, Katherine of Aragon, and Anne Boleyn—were instrumental in the rise and fall of families, wars, and even kings. Join author Sarah Gristwood as she charts the lives of more than a dozen highly infuential women and explores how they used their wits, wiles, and their relation to men (through birth, station, or marriage) to wield a power far greater than what the government and social structures legally allowed them—and changed the course of history.
