Described by Christopher Marlowe as the 'She-Wolf of France', Isabella was one of the most notorious femme fatales in history.
According to popular legend, her angry ghost can be glimpsed among church ruins, clutching the beating heart of her murdered husband.
But how did Isabella aquire this reputation?Born in 1292 she married Edward II of England but was constantly humiliated by his relationships with male favourites and she lived adulterously with Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March.
Had it not been for her unfaithfulness, history might have immortalised her as a liberator- the saviour who unshackled England from a weak and vicious monarch.
Dramatic and startling this first full-length biography of Isabella will change the way we think of her and her world forever.
