    This book really has some interesting facts about women I never have even heard of before, including Marie Antoinette, who apparently has some issues. This book is really fun to read because it always has something new to learn, even for the greatest queen experts.

          This looks like a really cool book to have. Especially, since I am studying queens of the medieval period up to the Renaissance. Sorry I missed out on such an awesome book. Guess, I will have to buy it.
