Doomed Queens: Royal Women Who Met Bad Ends, From Cleopatra to Princess Di



2008 | 176 Pages | ISBN: 0767928997 | EPUB | 4 MB

Illicit love, madness, betrayal--it isní»t always good to be the queen
Marie Antoinette, Anne Boleyn, and Mary, Queen of Scots. What did they have in common? For a while they were crowned in gold, cosseted in silk, and flattered by courtiers. But in the end, they spent long nights in dark prison towers and were marched to the scaffold where they surrendered their heads to the executioner. And they are hardly alone in their undignified demises. Throughout history, royal women have had a distressing way of meeting bad ends--dying of starvation, being burned at the stake, or expiring in childbirth while trying desperately to produce an heir.
