One of the earliest known Scottish queens was none other than the notorious Lady MacBeth. Was she really the wicked woman depicted in Shakespeare's famous play? Was St Margaret a demure and obedient wife?

One of the earliest known Scottish queens was none other than the notorious Lady MacBeth. Was she really the wicked woman depicted in Shakespeare's famous play? Was St Margaret a demure and obedient wife? Why did Margaret Logie exercise such an influence over her husband, David II, and have we underestimated James VI's consort, Anne of Denmark, frequently written off as a stupid and wilful woman? These are just a few of the questions addressed by Dr Marshall in her entertaining, scholarly study.

This is an absolute gem of a book and I own it quite by chance. It was a happy choice of present from friends of mine who are not historians and just happened to find themselves inspired one day by a streak of beginners' luck. Glossy, superbly presented from front cover to back, lavishly illustrated throughout from original sources, empathetically written - I have read no better book in recent years, and certainly no historical biography quite like it since A J P Taylor laid down his pen. It is a literary treasure second to none.

Henrietta Maria (to allude to a curse, reputedly Oriental in provenance) lived in interesting times. She was the daughter of a king (Henri Quatre, the Huguenot who thought Paris was "worth a Mass", and ended up paying for it with his life at the hands of an assassin); she was the wife of a king (Charles I of England, who utterly lost his chivalric heart to her and his head to Parliamentarians); and she was the mother of kings (Charles II, who reigned for 25 post-Restoration years, and James II, who learned no lessons from his father's decapitation and so lost the monarchy for the House of Stuart).This peerless volume tells how she coped with her tribulations from first to last.

Even so, what must be recognised from the start is that it is quite beyond the remit of Dr Marshall's masterpiece to supply facts and figures sufficient to gain the reader a First in seventeenth century Stuart studies - or even an A-Level Pass. But what this book will do, and most effectively at that, is supply a sumptuously panoramic background to more formal studies of the period, and in a manner that renders them all the more readily comprehensible. Because, for Henrietta Maria (daughter, wife, mother of kings, Royalist fund raiser of armies and monies - in addition to being, in her marital role, quite frequently enceinte) all alarums tend to be "off-", rather than "on-stage". And it is this unusual state of affairs which, in my estimation, lends the narrative such a refreshingly distinctive quasi-objective quality wherein the main protagonist in the story may well be far removed from the main action in any bodily sense, yet invariably closely caught up in it too, being so keenly affected by it on a more personal, emotional, feminine, and motherly level.

Enjoyable, though not very in-depth. Good illustration
