New book, 494 pages. Isabella was born in 1292, the daughter of Philip IV of France and sister of three future French kings. A pawn in the game of international politics, she was married at the age of twelve to Edward II of England. Isabella lived through a long period of civil war, constantly humiliated by Edwards relationships with male favourites. Had it not been for her unfaithfulness, history may have immortalised her as a liberator - the saviour who unshackled England from a weak and vicious monarch.
