Abstract:

Set against the backdrop of the thirteenth century, a time of chivalry and crusades, troubadors, knights, and monarchs, Four Queens is the story of four provocative sisters - Marguerite, Eleanor, Sanchia, and Beatrice of Provence - who rose from near obscurity to become the most coveted and powerful women in Europe. Each sister in this extraordinary family was beatutiful, cultured, and accomplished but what made these women so remarkable was that each became queen of a principal European power - France, England, Germany, and Sicily. During their regins, they exercised considerable political authority, raised armies, intervened diplomatically and helped redraw the map of Europe. Theirs is a drama of courage, sagacity, and ambition that re-examines the concept of leadership in the Middle Ages.
