Join Alison Weir on Thursday 16th November 7.30pm in The Great Hall at Alleyns School as she shares with us the dramatic story of five Norman queens from her new book Queens of the Conquest. From Matilda of Flanders, who supported William the Conqueror in his invasion of England in 1066, to the turbulent Empress Maud who founded the Plantagenet dynasty as the mother of Henry II. Stripping away centuries of romantic mythology and delving beyond the prejudice and credulity in contemporary sources, Alison will reveal a more balanced and authentic picture of these extraordinary women.
Love, hate, ambition and tragedy all feature in this epic saga.
