Reviews

"Impressive study"--Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian
"A lively and authoritative account"-- Katherine Harvey, Times Literary Supplement
"A fine example of the genre"--Tony Barber, The Financial Times
"[Matilda] will attract a growing audience interested in stories of women challenging the male-dominated European past."--Alexandra Locking, Medieval Review
"This account of Matilda's frenetic and unfulfilled life puts the DNA of her world's sexism front and center, which makes this thousand-year-old story feel...modern.."--Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Review
"The biography of Matilda I've been waiting for: as clear-sighted, forthright and formidable as the Empress herself. Catherine Hanley combines lucid scholarship with page-turning narrative; military expertise with a fine-grained understanding of the challenges facing a twelfth-century woman who sought to rule. The result - authoritative, human, and utterly compelling - is a triumph."--Helen Castor, author of She-Wolves
