Curious about the history that inspired the fantasy world of Game of Thrones? This book will introduce you to three historical women from the infamous War of the Roses (a key inspiration for the series, A Song of Ice and Fire) who have plenty in common with Cersei Lannister, Sansa Stark and Danaerys Targaryen. Whether they’re fighting for power in a male-dominated court like Margaret of Anjou or dealing with marital discord and family feuds like Elizabeth Woodville, their stories provide intriguing historical anecdotes, as well as making medieval history much more relatable
