Описание: When Edward VI - Henry VIII`s longed-for son - died in 1553, extraordinarily, there was no one left to claim the title King of England. For the first time, all the contenders for the crown were female. In 1553, England was about to experience the `monstrous regiment` - the unnatural rule - of a woman. But female rule in England also had a past.
With the death of Edward VI in 1553, England, for the first time, would have a reigning queen. The question was: Who?
Four women stood upon the crest of history: Katherine of Aragon's daughter, Mary; Anne Boleyn's daughter, Elizabeth; Mary, Queen of Scots; and Lady Jane Grey. But over the centuries, other exceptional women had struggled to push the boundaries of their authority and influence--and been vilified as "she-wolves" for their ambitions. Revealed in vivid detail, the stories of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Isabella of France, Margaret of Anjou, and the Empress Matilda expose the paradox that England's next female leaders would confront as the Tudor throne lay before them--man ruled woman, but these women sought to rule a nation.

Описание: The Wars of the Roses turned England upside down. Between 1455 and 1485 four kings lost their thrones, more than forty noblemen lost their lives on the
battlefield or their heads on the block, and thousands of the men who followed them met violent deaths. Yet almost nothing is known about the thoughts and feelings of the people who
lived through this bloody conflict, whether king or noble, landowner or peasant.
Almost nothing, but not quite. As they made their way in a disintegrating world, a Norfolk family
called the Pastons were writing letters - about politics, about business, about shopping, about love and about each other. Extraordinarily, these letters have survived the centuries; they
form the earliest great collection of private correspondence in the English language.
More than five hundred years on, the Pastons' voices still have the immediacy of an
overheard conversation. Blood and Roses traces the remarkable story of the Paston family across three generations. The world of the fifteenth-century aristocracy was a world of
cut-throat snobbery and vicious power struggles, and the Pastons were newcomers to the game: an ambitious nouveau riche family striving to establish themselves among the landed
They took part in the Wars of the Roses in supporting roles, but they were extraordinary characters in their own right: William Paston, the self-made man who founded
the family's fortunes; his son John Paston, who embarked on his own battle to inherit the estates of the rich old soldier Sir John Falstaff, the model of Shakespeare's Falstaff; John's wife
Margaret, who held the family together for forty years, raised seven children and defended the family's property from armed assault along the way; and their sons John II - a courtier with
a passion for books and an eye
or female company - and John III, the sensible, reliable brother, whose touching correspondence with his sweetheart includes the earliest surviving valentine in England.

Helen Castor shows how England's iconic queen was shaped by profound and enduring insecurity--an insecurity which was both a matter of practical political reality and personal psychology. From her precarious upbringing at the whim of a brutal, capricious father and her perilous accession after his death, to the religious division that marred her state and the failure to marry that threatened her line, Elizabeth lived under constant threat. But, facing down her enemies with a compellingly inscrutable public persona, the last and greatest of the Tudor monarchs would become a timeless, fearless queen.
