£15 non-subscriber, £12 subscriber

Less than a year after the United States did not elect its first woman president, Helen Castor examines the history of female power in England. She tells the story of Matilda, daughter of Henry I, who almost became England’s first reigning queen, and takes a new look at how Mary and Elizabeth Tudor did, despite everything, manage to wear their father’s crown.
