Isabella wrote to her son, Henry III, to explain and justify why she had supplanted her own daughter as Hugh’s bride, claiming that his ‘friends’ were worried about Joan’s youth and forcing Hugh to repudiate the English princess in favour of a French bride who was old enough to bear him a son. Joan had been betrothed, at the age of 4, to Hugh X de Lusignan, Count of La Marche and the son of Hugh IX de Lusignan (the man who had been betrothed to Isabella before John married her). With little to recommend her, she stands out as a She-wolf with an impressive ruthless streak, even against her own son. In 1174, when the rebellion failed, Henry accepted the submission of his sons. But who are we to let facts get in the way of a good story? Available now from Amazon UK, Amberley Publishing, Book Depository and Amazon US. Edward and Hugh were captured near Llantrisant in Wales. Although she reconciled with Henry in 1230, Isabella and Hugh continued to play the kings of France and England against each other, always looking for the advantage. Eleanor did, however, commit one of the most heinous crimes a woman could in the medieval world. In the same year, 1042, Zoe took a third husband, Emperor Constantine IX, who co-ruled the empire, with the two sisters. When her first husband, Louis VII, led the Second Crusade, Eleanor went with him, only to find herself mired in scandal. Eleanor, who was captured as she rode towards safety in France, wearing men’s clothing – an act itself highly frowned upon – was not so fortunate. When John died in October 1216, however, Isabella didn’t spend much time seeking to comfort and protect her children. She was only released after Henry II’s death in 1189, when her favourite son, Richard I, the Lionheart, ascended England’s throne. Further losses in Sicily and the emperor’s worsening epilepsy added to the empire’s woes. She has also made appearances in various other television series including Grafters and Conviction. Henry married her Emmerdale co-star, Jeff Hordley, in 2003. By all accounts, while Basil fought to preserve his empire, Constantine was more in love with the trapping of power, rather than the wielding of it. While it was not encouraged for sons to rebel against their father, it could be seen as boys flexing their muscles. Silk and the Sword: The Women of the Norman Conquest traces the fortunes of the women who had a significant role to play in the momentous events of 1066. At the age of 50, in 1028, she was married to her father’s designated successor, probably to add legitimacy to his claim to the imperial throne. So I have chosen 6 women who could have been termed ‘she-wolves’ to show women from both viewpoints, and to demonstrate the strength of the characters and the challenges they faced. In 1325, Isabella went on a diplomatic mission to France to negotiate terms with her brother, the French king Charles IV, who had seized Edward’s lands in France. Michael IV then banished Zoe to a monastery. In 1173 her eldest son by Henry, also called Henry, rebelled against his father and fled to the French court for support. Although King Tewdr escaped Æthelflæd, his wife did not; Queen Angharad and thirty-three others, many of them relatives of the Welsh king, were taken back to Mercia as hostages. Zoe promptly married her lover and made him Emperor Michael IV. He was exiled to a monastery, but complaints about such lenient treatment meant that Zoe issued orders for his mutilation and he was blinded, an act symbolically rendering him incapable of ruling. It will be released in the US on 2 September and is available for pre-order from Amazon US. Zoe was described by a palace courtier, Michael Psellos, as; ‘a woman of great beauty, most imposing in her manner and commanding respect … a woman of passionate interests, prepared with equal enthusiasm for both alternatives, death or life, I mean. The young emperor was deposed after only 4 months of disastrous rule. Zoe was described by a palace courtier, Michael Psellos, as ‘a woman of great beauty, most imposing in her manner and commanding respect … a woman of passionate interests.’. Some claim he escaped to the continent, dying years later in Italy, while others are convinced that he was killed in Berkeley Castle, although probably not by a red-hot poker up his bum. Isabella herself was implicated in a plot to poison King Louis IX of France and his brother, only to be foiled at the last minute. Isabella had married Hugh to stop him going over to the French and to guarantee his allegiance to her son. Henry stated she was really looking forward to this storyline, stating "over the years, I worked with adults and children with Down Syndrome. At first sight, it is easy to have sympathy for Isabella of Angouleme. Her new husband became Emperor Romanos III, and Zoe empress consort, when he succeeded to the throne just 3 days after the wedding. She was the second of 3 daughters born to Constantine VIII and his wife, Helena. From Emma of Normandy, wife of both King Cnut and Æthelred II to Saint Margaret, a descendant of Alfred the Great himself, Silk and the Sword: the Women of the Norman Conquest traces the fortunes of the women who had a significant role to play in the momentous events of 1066. For a wife to rebel against her husband was practically unheard of, and went against the natural order of society, and therefore deserved harsher punishment – where would the world be if women refused to behave? Zoë Henry was born on September 3, 1973 in Essex, England as Zoe Louise Carter. It is a term that has been used as a criticism or insult. It was great fun and I'm sure it will help with filming"..
