    Kindle ueens Consort eBook ´ Ã manga books.co ueens ebok, consort mobile, ueens Consort KindleIn the period between the Norman Conuest and the accession of Mary Tudor in the sixteenth century no woman ruled England as ueen in her own right The role and status of king were constantly in the process of redefinition an ongoing negotiation between royal ecclesiastical and aristocratic powers but they remained throughout essentially constitutional their authority enshrined in and upheld by law No euivalent constitutional role existed for the king's consort Yet between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries English ueenship evolved an identity of its own an identity predicated on but not limited to marriage to the king The story of England's medieval ueens is composed of two entwined narrative strands the first the development of ueenly tr

    Kindle ueens Consort eBook ´ Ã manga books.co ueens ebok, consort mobile, 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 you all the information you could possibly want about the ueens but if you're interested in learning how the role of ueen consort evolved it's wai

    Kindle ueens Consort eBook ´ Ã manga books.co ueens ebok, consort mobile, 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 there any? Really? I think not And what's with the unprofessional bias
