Description
The author of such enormously successful historical novels as The Other Boleyn Girl teams with two eminent historians here to explore the real-life figures behind her Wars of the Roses novels. In her essay on Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, Philippa Gregory uses original documents, archaeology, and histories of myth and witchcraft to create the first published biography of a young duchess who survived two reigns and two wars to become the first lady at two rival courts. David Baldwin, established authority on the Wars of the Roses, tells the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the first commoner to marry a king of England for love; and Michael Jones, fellow of the Royal Historical Society, writes of Margaret Beaufort, the almost-unknown matriarch of the House of Tudor. In her introduction, Gregory explains the differences between history and historical fiction: How much of a role does speculation play in writing each? How much fiction and how much fact should there be in a historical novel? And how are female historians changing our view of women in history?
