    schema:description "The riveting history of a beautiful Queen, a shocking murder, a papal trial -- and a reign as triumphant as any in the Middle Ages. Italy, 14th-century -- amid intrigue, betrayal, and conspiracy, Joanna I of Sicily became the only female monarch of her day to rule in her own name, and one of the most courageous women in history. Married for political advantage at the age of seven to her six-year-old Hungarian cousin, Joanna saw her brilliant, cultivated world shattered 12 years later by the brutal assassination of her husband. Accused of the murder by her powerful in-laws, Joanna was forced to flee her kingdom and stand trial for her life before the papal court at Avignon on on March 15, 1348. The account of how, despite her youth and sex, she triumphed over her enemies, raised an army, and took back her realm makes for one of the most compelling sagas of any age. Joanna went on to rule for a further 30 years, weathering war, plague, and treason to become one of the most powerful and influential leaders in Italy. Her reign rivaled that of Elizabeth I in power and scope until the violence and treachery of the medieval world ultimately betrayed her. - Jacket flap."@en ;
