The British Royals are back in the news! From new babies (welcome to the world, Prince Louis Arthur Charles) to the upcoming royal wedding (congratulations Harry and Meghan), the world again is focused on London, Britain, and Buckingham Palace.
So it's a great time to take a look back at the history that got us here. In a wryly written, absolutely engrossing story, Nancy Goldstone takes us back to the five women in the seventeenth century who charted the future of British kings and queens . Mary, Queen of Scots, may have lost her head, but in the long run, she proved to be the victor in the royal battles, as it was her granddaughter -- Elizabeth Stuart, the Winter Queen -- and Elizabeth's four extraordinary daughters who shaped the bloodline all the way down to today's royal family.
Don't miss this interview with Nancy Goldstone about her new book and the courage, scheming, violence, and wiles that won the battle of succession more than three hundred years ago.
