Als King Edward VI 1553 starb, gab es neun Anwärter auf den Thron, alle mit dem gleichen Makel. Denn wie kann eine Frau König sein?! Die Autorin betrachtet 400 Jahre weiblicher königlicher Macht. So waren Matilda, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Isabella von Frankreich und Margaret von Anjou Königsgemahlinnen und Königswitwen, die die Geschicke ihres Landes und der Monarchengeschlechter - lenkten.

In medieval England, man was the ruler of woman, and the King was the ruler of all. How, then, could royal power lie in female hands?

In She-Wolves, celebrated historian, Helen Castor, tells the dramatic and fascinating stories of four exceptional women who, while never reigning queens, held great power: Matilda, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Isabella of France and Margaret of Anjou. These were women who paved the way for Jane Grey, Mary Tudor and Elizabeth I - the Tudor queens who finally confronted what it meant to be a female monarch.
