Queens of England Podcast
About This Show
Too often when we think about the history of a country we think only of kings, lords, castles, and battles. When we think of queens we think of rulers like Elizabeth I and Victoria, but what about the queens who sat beside their warrior husbands? This podcast is an alternative history of Medieval and Early Modern England, seen through the lives of its queens.
