    PDF/EPUB Lisa Hilton Ñ PDF/EPUB ueens Consort Kindle À Ñ sallow.co ueens book, consort pdf, ueens Consort KindleI'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 ueens counts in my world as light readingThis book starts with Matilda of Flanders wife of William the Conueror 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 ueens 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 less interesting wives and just talk about Eleanor of AuitaineObviously this book is not going to give

    PDF/EPUB Lisa Hilton Ñ PDF/EPUB ueens Consort Kindle À Ñ sallow.co ueens book, consort pdf, ueens Consort KindleI picked up ueens Consort because it looked like it'd be useful to me in understanding the portrayal of ueens in literature in the medieval period It turned out to be interesting in general covering the lives of ueens 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 ueen 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 ueen as a peaceweaver which I knew of through Beowulf; obviously the idea of a diplomatic marria

    PDF/EPUB Lisa Hilton Ñ PDF/EPUB ueens Consort Kindle À Ñ sallow.co ueens book, consort pdf, ueens Consort KindlePersonally I found ueens Consort England’s Medieval ueens to be a work of see sawing uality 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 ueens who ruled England from the time of the Norman Conuest 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 ueen at its focus Additionally Hilton is hamstrung by various problems such as a paucity of evidence a notoriety that needs to be thoroughly examined or ueens who appeared to do little at allSome of the individual biographies were a slog to get through uite dry in tone and weighed down by a mass of names and compressed history

    PDF/EPUB Lisa Hilton Ñ PDF/EPUB ueens Consort Kindle À Ñ sallow.co ueens book, consort pdf, ueens Consort KindleIt'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 when you bring in a point concerning one of them Which brings me to editing was th

    PDF/EPUB Lisa Hilton Ñ PDF/EPUB ueens Consort Kindle À Ñ sallow.co ueens book, consort pdf, ueens Consort KindleThis is an excellent book if anyone wants to learn of the medieval ueens of England The books excels in many parts and I learned a lot from it about the Anarchy period and the civil war between Matilda and Stephen and the important role Stephen's wife also named Matilda played in her husband's rule and repelling her rival once she was in England I did not know a lot about William the Conueror's wife before reading this only the basics or her successors Henry I's wives Edith of Scotland who later renamed herself Matilda and Adeliza of Louvain However there were some parts in which the book's credibility went downhill Starting with Eleanor of Auitaine which I agree with the author regarding the many myths surrounding this woman that either extol her
