In the Medieval and Tudor world there was no question in peoples' minds about the order of God's creation - men ruled and women did not. A king was a warrior who literally fought to win power, then battled to keep it. Yet despite everything that stood in their way, a handful of extraordinary women did attempt to and finally succeeded at ruling medieval and Tudor England. In SHE-WOLVES: ENGLAND'S EARLY QUEENS, Helen Castor explores the lives of seven queens who challenged male power, the fierce reactions they provoked, and whether the term "She-Wolves" was deserved.
