Description

Marguerite of Anjou, wife to Henry VI of England, grew up in a world filled with uncertainty, betrayal, traitors, and murderers. At a very young age, she witnessed her father being taken prisoner, her mother fighting to maintain control of her inheritance, and the arranged marriage of her aunt to the King of France. It's a time that no young girl could dream of, but it was the world that Marguerite knew. To play her part in the affairs of state, the young girl is betrothed to the much older King of England. She is determined to make sure that her fortune is very different from the women that governed her life. King Henry loves his wife, but has doubts about his ability to produce an heir. However, it is Marguerite that takes the blame. She must get a son to secure her husband's throne, but the threat of war puts all of her plans on hold. England is emerged in a war between two rival families that both believe they have a legitimate claim to the throne. The houses of Lancaster and York will fight to the death to have the victory. Marguerite soon finds herself plotting treason, murder, lies, and adultery to see that the House of Lancaster stays firmly on England's throne. As Henry goes mad, she must take on the roles of King and Queen, play the political leader, all the while maintaining her virtue as a woman. History will remember her as a she-wolf, but it is the road that she must travel that will put her at the forefront of intriguing events, making her a Queen-Consort that England will never forget.
