An blameless pawn
A nation with no king
A new dynasty will reign…
1415. The jewel within the French crown, Katherine de Valois, is ready lower than lock and key for King Henry V. whereas he is been slaughtering her kinsmen in Agincourt, Katherine has been praying for marriage to save lots of her from her distress. however the brutal king wishes her crown, now not her blameless love.
For Katherine, England is a lion's den of greed, avarice and distrust. And while she is widowed at twenty-one, she turns into a prize ripe for the taking—her younger son the long run monarch, her hand in marriage worthy a kingdom.
it is a lethal political online game, one the dowager queen needs to examine quickly. The players—the Duke of Gloucester, Edmund Beaufort and Owen Tudor—are circling. Who can have her? Who will smash her? this can be the tale of Katherine de Valois.
