Reviews

  • The book that I most anticipated this year was Alison Weir's Queens of the Crusades... Told with all of Weir's characteristic verve and exceptional eye for detail, this book should find its way into every history lover's Christmas stocking.

    Tracy Borman, BBC History Magazine *Books of the Year 2020*
  • Stunning... [Weir has] brought those five queens to life like never before. I just raced through it - it has all the drama and suspense of a novel.

  • [A] historian who has achieved popularity without sacrificing scholarly precision... She writes with the dramatic intensity of a novelist.

    Gerard DeGroot, The Times
  • As in previous books, the exceedingly knowledgeable author's prodigious research is impressive. Another treat for Weir fans.

    Kirkus Reviews
  • This meticulous group biography of the first five Plantagenet queens of England brushes away long-standing legends. Weir skillfully documents the political, religious, and cultural issues of medieval England and France.

    Publishers Weekly
  • Fascinating.

    Tracy Borman, Daily Express, *Books of the Year*
