    I read this book to learnor at least, a little about the Winter Queen Queen of Bohemia, Liselotte and Minette I ve been reading a lot about the Stuarts, and these three in particular are mentioned quite a bit, but I never really knew who they were This book did help me in that regard, and I did really enjoy reading it However, it doesn t talk about the female Stuarts individually Each woman blurs into each other in the writing, so the book would be on the topic of the Winter Queen o I read this book to learnor at least, a little about the Winter Queen Queen of Bohemia, Liselotte and Minette I ve been reading a lot about the Stuarts, and these three in particular are mentioned quite a bit, but I never really knew who they were This book did help me in that regard, and I did really enjoy reading it However, it doesn t talk about the female Stuarts individually Each woman blurs into each other in the writing, so the book would be on the topic of the Winter Queen on which over half the book is dedicated and then it would randomly talk about Liselotte, who was the favourite of said Winter Queen I d be sitting there and thinking yeah but who is she It also felt quite lacking for not talking about the women in equal length For example, the Winter Queen was discussed from birth to death, which covered half of the book, but Queen Anne, who was Queen of Britain and the final Stuart monarch was covered half in her sister s chapter and a couple pages in the random epilogue It also didn t cover all of the Stuart princesses or Queens so it s not entirely comprehensive All in all, a very good introduction, but not amazing if you wantdetail

    Although overall I did enjoy this book, I felt that not enough detail was given to the lives of each princess As perhaps an introduction to the Stuart princesses, this book is great but for somebody like myself, looking to further my existing knowledge, it falls short.The author writes well The chapters flow perfectly and she manages to stay on topic There are plenty of notes for sources at the back of the book which is good The pictures in the book are in black and white which is disappoint Although overall I did enjoy this book, I felt that not enough detail was given to the lives of each princess As perhaps an introduction to the Stuart princesses, this book is great but for somebody like myself, looking to further my existing knowledge, it falls short.The author writes well The chapters flow perfectly and she manages to stay on topic There are plenty of notes for sources at the back of the book which is good The pictures in the book are in black and white which is disappointing as I always prefer nice glossy colour photos of the subjects I was highly disappointed with the detail given to Queen Anne, she only had a few pages at the end of the book Surely a reigning monarch deserves at least one chapter of their own, right I d have liked to seeabout her relationship with her exiled father, her husband, her dominant friend Sarah Churchill and her many pregnancies I did however enjoy the amount of space given to Elizabeth, Queen of Bohemia She would be the Stuart princess that I knew the least about and a fair bit of the book was based around her, her marriage, queenship and her relationships with her immediate and extended family As I said, this book is a good book to use as an introduction to the lives if the Stuart girls If you re looking for a , in depth bio of their lives, this isn t the book for you

    This was an interesting and informative look at the Stuart women most particularly Elizabeth of Bohemia, Charles II s sister Minette, and Queen Mary II and Queen Anne I thought at times that a bithistorical context would have been helpful, especially regarding the English Civil War, and I thought that Anne s reign got rather short shrift Still, this was an excellent introduction to the lives of these women, particularly Elizabeth of Bohemia and Minette.


  5. Mary Mary says:

    The story of the Stuarts is my favourite era after the Tudors This is about the story of Charles I and II s sisters Great to find outabout them Women who shaped the history of that time but so often forgotten Brilliant.


  6. Andrea Wall Andrea Wall says:

    A very well written history book Of course you have to actully like history before reading it or you d find it dull Make susre your awake when reading it because they people lead very detailed lives and you have to pay attention to keep the many different characters in line.
