Her route to the throne is paved with treason… 1330.
Philippa of Hainault could be married to King Edward III yet she’s penniless and powerless. England quivers within the clutches of the Dowager Queen Isabella and her darkly formidable lover Lord Mortimer whereas her husband rots in reformatory, a prisoner at Mortimer’s hand. it is going to take a brave younger guy to emerge from the shadows and stand up in contrast ambitious pair.
Philippa won’t chill out and spot Edward puppeteered. She is set to determine justice performed. It’s her phrases whispered into the younger King Edward’s ear that might see the conflict for England’s throne commence.
Mightier have fallen. Treason threatens. The victor’s prize is England…failure is death.
It’s a strong union that ties Philippa and Edward during this darkly beautiful brief tale yet will it usually be so?
