The first half of the thirteenth century is dominated by two women as proud and ambitious as they were beautiful yet different in all other ualitiesIsabella. In The Battle of the ueens Plaidy offers yet another great insight into the turning of the wheels of that era the eternal struggle between England and France with the Church as an ever present puppet master The two protagonists in the title whom the book centres on are Isabella mother of Henry III of England and Blanche mother of Luis IX of France The two women who despised each other couldn't be different Isabella hot tempered promiscuous self centred and Blanche pious level headed thoughtful of others Alongside the lives of the great historical personages Plaidy includes those of seemingly lesser importance who had nonetheless a great impact on history or even those who had none but give her story colour and beat from the siblings of Henry III to nursemaids And at that she doesn't forget Eleanor of Auitaine in the last years of her life who remained a powerful historical player till her very end Thus the one thing that always frustrates me in historical fiction women being looked upon as nothing than political bargaining chips is upturned on its head in Plaidy's books For despite being reduced to objects for political games of men women were most often the ones who actively decided the fate of nations and affected the world history at large Isabella and Blanche were definitely one of those proverbial women behind successful men the women who made their names or – in Isabella's case – sometimes ruined themCross posted from BookLikes
