Description
Marie Antoinette, Anne Boleyn, and Mary, Queen of Scots—for a while they were crowned in gold, cosseted in silk, and flattered by courtiers. But in the end, they spent long nights in prison towers and ultimately surrendered their heads to the executioner. Throughout history, royal women have had a distressing way of meeting bad ends, from Cleopatra (suicide by asp, as tradition has it) to Princess Caroline (suspiciously poisoned on her coronation day). The author and illustrator of The Lover's Path, The Book of Goddesses, and The Goddess Tarot, Kris Waldherr here gives us an elegantly illustrated chronicle of the trials and tribulations of 50 queens across the ages—a quirky, macabre tribute to the dark side of female empowerment.

"A smart, sassy overview of the 'dark side' of the crown and scepter. It makes a girl glad she was born a commoner."—Robin Maxwell
