A good overview of some of the remarkable women who ruled, or at least tried to rule, England before Elizabeth I. That being said, while the history is fascinating, Castor a good writer and the women's characters and motives perceptively analysed, this book lacks a more gendered analysis of women's roles and rights within the different periods. Good, though, to see some of history's more neglected women being given the write up they deserve.
