Renaissance Queens

The Legendary Women of World History

Author: Laurel A. Rockefeller

Barnes and Noble

Now at last three Legendary Women of World History biographies in a single boxed set volume.

Joined together by more than just blood, French Princess Catherine de Valois (queen consort to King Henry V of England) and her descendants Queen Elizabeth Tudor of England and Queen Mary Stuart of Scotland dramatically changed the world as we know it, daring to do the extraordinary and risking everything in a time when women held few legal rights as individuals.

Begin the journey with “Catherine de Valois.” As King Henry V of England invades France in his bloodthirsty war of conquest and terror, Princess Catherine is forced by her father’s paranoid schizophrenia and a civil war at home with the Burgundians into marriage with one man she hates most. Yet hope is not lost for the reluctant queen of England as Owain Ap Tudor, son of a Welsh freedom fighter, earns a key position in the royal household thanks to his valour on the field of Agincourt. Their meeting changed the world forever in this fascinating story of love, loss, and war.

Next, discover the reign of Queen Mary Stuart in “Mary Queen of the Scots.” Most people focus on how Queen Mary died, but in truth Mary was the glittering “people’s princess” of the 16th century whose mark on Scottish culture and Edinburgh in particular shines brightly to this day. Contending with the violent Scottish reformation (literally conducted at the point of swords), Queen Mary’s beauty, compassion, and glittering court won the hearts and minds of the common people in defiance of the rich and powerful exploiting the poor. Meet the real Queen Mary and celebrate her life!

Finally, go behind the curtain of Queen Elizabeth Tudor in “Queen Elizabeth Tudor: Journey to Gloriana.” Told through the lens of her relationship with Robert Dudley you will go beyond the glamour of her court to meet the bright, sensitive, and passionate woman she really was.

Each book in this boxed set includes period music, timelines, and comprehensive bibliographies so you can keep learning.

Catherine de Valois

The Legendary Women of World History Book 2

Author: Laurel Rockefeller


Shakespeare was wrong!

In 1401, Catherine de Valois seemed like just another daughter to King Charles VI of France and his wife, Queen Isabeau of Bavaria, doomed to live forever in obscurity. That is until she became the excuse King Henry V of England needed in order to declare war with France.

Caught between her father's mental illness and both a civil war at home and war with England, Catherine found the eyes of the Christian world fixed upon her.

Shakespeare would tell her story in his grand history play "Henry V," concealing the real woman she was.

Discover the real Catherine and how this young woman of courage, conviction, and peace changed not just her 15th century world, but the lives of every British and American woman and man born since.

Mary Queen of the Scots

The Legendary Women of World History Book 3

Author: Laurel A. Rockefeller


Queen Mary Stuart was one of the most beloved and controversial women in Scottish history. The granddaughter of King James IV and his wife Margaret Tudor, Queen Mary's status as heiress-apparent to the English throne paired with the violence of the Scottish Reformation set the stage for one of the most dramatic and poorly understood lives of the 16th century.

Mary Queen of the Scots tells Mary's true story, focusing primarily on her reign as queen of Scotland, celebrating her life more than her death, and showing us all why she was truly a woman ahead of her time.

A Legendary Women of World History creative non-fiction biography. Includes four period songs.

Queen Elizabeth Tudor: Journey to Gloriana

The Legendary Women of World History Book 4

Author: Laurel A. Rockefeller


Queen Elizabeth Tudor is still known today as "Gloriana" after her small fleet of agile ships defeated the Spanish Armada's 131 galleons in the English Channel on 6 August 1588.

But how did this happen and why is the late Elizabethan era the "Golden Age?"

In this beautiful creative non-fiction biography you'll meet Elizabeth as you have never met her before.

Whether you are a fan of the Tudor dynasty or this is your first time exploring English history, you will gain valuable insights into the mind of perhaps the most legendary woman in world history as told through the eyes of her famous -- or infamous -- relationship with Robert Dudley.

Features six medieval and Elizabethan songs, a detailed timeline, and an extensive suggested reading list.
