    Epub 3monthpaydayloansnowco #8608; Queens Consort Kindle #215; queens pdf, consort ebok, Queens Consort MOBII'm trying to clear out some bookshelves and the space beside my bed by getting rid of reading books that I've had for years This is one that I picked up for some fun reading yes biographies of medieval queens counts in my world as light readingThis book starts with Matilda of Flanders wife of William the Conqueror and ends with Elizabeth of York wife of Henry VII Not to spoil things but by the end of the book they are all deadThe author does a good job within the confines of the book After all if you're covering a lot of queens in one book you don't have much space for each That said this book included information than I've found in most places about Berengaria of Navarre The book doesn't allow the author to ignore the les

    Epub 3monthpaydayloansnowco #8608; Queens Consort Kindle #215; queens pdf, consort ebok, Queens Consort MOBII picked up Queens Consort because it looked like it'd be useful to me in understanding the portrayal of queens in literature in the medieval period It turned out to be interesting in general covering the lives of queens who are little remembered now as well as the notorious ones and trying to portray them fairly rather than as their detractors would have liked them to be remembered or similarly with reference to their flaws as well as the propaganda intended to make them into heroines Lisa Hilton is after a balanced and truthful portrayal It's a good survey of how the role of queen consort developedI also found her references to the literature mostly in the conclusion to the book and to concepts I've encountered only in literature until now the idea of a queen as a peaceweaver which I knew of through Beowulf obviously the idea of a diplomatic marriage t

    Epub 3monthpaydayloansnowco #8608; Queens Consort Kindle #215; queens pdf, consort ebok, Queens Consort MOBIPersonally I found Queens Consort England’s Medieval Queens to be a work of see sawing quality that landed on the negative side of the things Lisa Hilton has given herself a thankless task in trying to condense the lives of twenty queens who ruled England from the time of the Norman Conquest to the beginnings of Tudor rule – all in all about four hundred years’ worth of history – into the space of five hundred pages with each chapter needing to at least to pretend to be a biography of the queen at its focus Additionally Hilton is hamstrung by various probl

    Epub 3monthpaydayloansnowco #8608; Queens Consort Kindle #215; queens pdf, consort ebok, Queens Consort MOBIIt's a tribute to my stubbornness that I finished this book I took a break of six months and almost didn't bother picking it up again I managed to crawl through it finally by reading three other books at the same timeWhat can I say? I don't even know where to begin I've read books where I didn't agree with the author's premiss and whilst this is certainly one of those that doesn't even begin to describe the issues I have with it Let's start with the errors I lost count of the number of errors Literally And there was no way I was going back through for a recount So this fails as a reference book because it is unreliable Then there's clarity If you introduce a truckload of Elizabeths and Matildas it doesn't seem unreasonable to expect you to be clear as to which one you mean whe

    Epub 3monthpaydayloansnowco #8608; Queens Consort Kindle #215; queens pdf, consort ebok, Queens Consort MOBIso after waiting 8 weeks to get this from the library I really wanted to enjoy this book Let's face it this book should have been heaven for me I totally geek out on medieval history women studies and religious history It should have been a fabulous read I was very excited to get a different perspective on Eleanor of Aquitaine and Isabella of France but I was particularly to read about English Queen consorts I have only read about on the fringes of other histories or biographies Boy was I disappointedThings started off strong and I did enjoy myself through the chapter on Eleanor of Aquitaine It was about that time that I began to notice the mistakes The fur
