The book contains at the beginning a well-drawn map of Normandy in AD 1066 and also printed two important extensive Family Trees, while at the end of the book you'll find some superbly documented Historical Notes concerning this great story.
So all in all the historical details concerning this story have been very well researched and explained in a beautiful fashion by the this fine author.
Storytelling is of an absolute top-notch quality, for the author brings all her characters vividly to life within this thrilling and enjoyable tale by combining and using real historical and fictional figures in a true masterly fashion.
This book is set between the years AD 1049 until AD 1067, and it tells us the story of Mathilda of Flanders and William, Duke of Normandy, from the rule of the Duchy of Normandy until becoming Queen and King of England in AD 1066.
It's also the story of Mathilda's and William's final animated and determined goal to reach their promised destination, promised by Kind Edward in AD 1051, by winning the Battle of Hastings in the year AD 1066 against the Saxon forces lead by the then King of England, Harold Godwinson, and so to become Queen and King of England.
And so this is a fascinating life story of Mathilda of Flanders and William, Duke of Normandy, and their union of love, determination and conquer to achieve and reach their ultimate goal.
Very much recommended, for this is a most compelling book and in my opinion worth calling: "A Wonderful Conquering Queen-like Ending"!
