    Absorbed in the power plays that are a constant feature of this book, you might forget you’re reading real history and think you’re reading the background to a complex Middle Ages–inspired TV drama. There are alliances, betrayals, bastards, love, conquests, wars, religion, money, births, deaths and marriages on every page. But Alison Weir is a serious historian who has published many books for general readers. In this, the first of four volumes about England’s medieval queens, Weir tells the stories of the five consorts of the Norman kings of England who ruled from 1066 to 1154 – four Matildas (one also known as Maud) and Adeliza – whose power was not solely due to their royal status. As intriguing as it is accessible.
