About this product
- DescriptionWarwick the Kingmaker, the Earl of Warwick & Salisbury whose wealth and power was so great that he could effectively decide who would rule England during the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487), had six sisters: Joan, Cecily, Alice, Elear, Katherine and Margaret. They all married powerful blemen who often found themselves on opposing sides during this turbulent period. The Kingmaker's Sisters examines the role that they played in late fifteenth-century England, as wives, mothers and homemakers, but also as deputies for their absent husbands, and how the struggle between the Yorkists and the Lancastrians affected them and their families. Scholarly but accessible, this is the first history of the Wars of the Roses to be written from this perspective, and will appeal to general readers, historians of the period and those with an interest in feminist history. David Baldwin is a popular lecturer who has devised and taught history courses at Leicester University for many years. He is the author of Elizabeth Woodville: Mother of the Princes in the Tower , Stoke Field: the Last Battle of the Wars of the Roses and The Lost Prince: the Survival of Richard of York .
