Her children or her crown France, 1399: The Duke of Brittany is
dead and his widow, Joanna of Navarre, has inherited control of
their land – a testament to her intellect, integrity and political
prowess. Then comes an unprecedented proposal from Henry IV, King
of England. The price of becoming his Queen? Abandoning her
homeland, leaving her children and sacrificing her independence.
Henry's hold on the crown is unsteady and war is brewing. With the
constant threat of rebellion, Henry will trust no-one – not even
his new Queen. Crossing the channel is a dangerous prospect. But
the union between Joanna and Henry would bring the chance of a
vital alliance between two proud states – if they will allow it.
One question. Two paths. A choice that will make history.
