This book does exactly what it sets out to do, tells the story of each of England's queens consort from Matilda to Elizabeth of York - via more than a few Isabelles and Eleanors - and it does it well enough.

As other reviews have pointed out, there are a few mistakes and typos that have slipped past the copy-editor, but my main problem with this book was that it was very dry and rushed in places.

For a similar book that I much preferred, try She-Wolves by Helen Castor (recently made into a three-part documentary on BBC4). She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth
