Isabel the Fair


Isabel the Fair, so called because of her great beauty, was the daughter of King Philip of France, and when she married Edward II of England it seemed a perfect match. But nothing in the Plantagenet court was as it seemed, and their marriage would prove to be the undoing of both of them. The handsome Plantagenet king had room in his heart for no one but his favourite, Piers Gaveston, the Earl of Cornwall, and Isabel found herself cast aside for the young Gascon lord.

Young Isabel finds herself taking a backseat to the two lovers, a position that did not sit well with her, whose only desire had been to have a happy marriage. Edward's obsessive love for his young lover man turned the resentful Isabel against him and brought England to civil war. Finally, the beautiful girl became a vengeful woman whom they called the "She-Wolf," and with her masterful lover, Roger Mortimer, she invaded the disordered county to seize power from the king...
