Scottish Queens, 1034-1714
Tuckwell, 2003 - 226 էջ
From Lady Macbeth of evil repute to the tragic Anne, Queen of a united Engand and Scotland, this accessible book provides lively and revealing miniature portraits' of these largely forgotton women. Rosalind Marshall's aims are to discuss the nature of Scottish queenship while exploring the personalities behind the throne, asking how these women managed to cope with the difficulties that inevitably followed an arranged marriage, usually in a country foreign from their own. Not surprisingly, the very readable biographies are at their longest when discussing some of the more familiar names such as Margaret Tudor, Mary of Guise and Mary Queen of Scots.
