Back in November I was given the opportunity to read the lastest tome from Mark Hichens entitled "Queens and Empresses".
From the Press Release: "History is brought to life through the colourful stories of eleven queens and empresses. Their lives were often tempestuous and tragic, ending in execution, suicide, divorce or abdication. Some were child brides, pawns in political games, and most had unfaithful husbands."
As you may have guessed, Mark's new book focuses on the lives of a number of amazing women - some notable, some notorious, but all worthy of our attention. The ladies in question are a varied group, from Cleopatra VII of Egypt, Mary Queen of Scots, Christina of Sweden, Maire Antionette, and finishing off with Queen Victoria.
