While in France the sons of the Iron King keep dying, following perhaps the terrible curse of the Grand Master of the Templars, in England Queen Isabella, wife to Edward II is not immune to the curse as well - her husband ignores her in favour of his newest favourite, Hugh Despenser the Younger, who in turn robs her blind, taking her jewels, money and other valuables/5(4).

Here is The She-Wolf of France book excellent book by Alison Weir. She breaks new ground with her balanced account of a woman who has long been vilified by history on the basis of some rather biased chroniclers who had a variety of agendas.

I'm still not totally convinced that Edward II escaped Mortimer's murder plot, but she does make a very strong case for this theory/5(). This is the story of how Isabella the Fair became Isabella: the She-wolf of France, earning notoriety throughout the western world and why some of that notoriety was justly or unjustly deserved.

The story is told in a compelling 90 day countdown which ends with the execution of Edward II’s lover and favourite Hugh Despenser the Younger/5(15). This book starts off a little slow but when it picks up it never slows down.

This book goes into great deal of how and why the She-Wolf got her name. This book goes into the rise and shirt lived reign of Mortimer. This novel also dives more into the history of Queen Isabella relationship w/ King Edward II and his awful historical death/5().

Hell hath no wrath like a royal spurned/5. Going into The She-Wolf, the fifth book in Maurice Druon's The Accursed Kings series, I had my expectations under control.

The Royal Succession is my favourite book in the series thus far, and it is a TOUGH act to follow. All the scheming and backstabbing are amped up in book four, and Druon held nothing back with the hard punches/5().
