Reviews

"Tracy Borman tells this story with a steady eye and a steady hand, tracing what can be known of Matilda's part in the events that were to change the course of English history" -- Helen Castor * Literary Review *
"Borman shows that Matilda was a capable regent and political operator... Matilda remains relevant: one legacy is her bloodline, which still rules in Britain today" * Sunday Times *
"A richly layered treatment of a stormy reign" * Kirkus *
"Borman moves deftly between the difficult written sources... The often scanty details of Matilda's life are given more rounded form by viewing them in context" * History Today *
