The Lives of the Queens of England

The Lives of the Queens of England by Anges Strickland, Elisabeth Strickland
By: (1796-1874)

The Lives of the Queens of England is a multi-volumed work attributed to Agnes Strickland, though it was mostly researched and written by her sister Elizabeth. These volumes give biographies of the queens of England from the Norman Conquest in 1066. Although by today's standards, it is not seen as a very scholarly work, the Stricklands used many sources that had not been used before.

Volume one includes the biographies of Matilda of Flanders, Matilda of Scotland, Adelicia of Louvaine, Matilda of Boulogne and Eleanora of Aquitaine.

I only made it two chapters in before I had to turn it off. The way the reader finishes her sentences is really unnatural and robotic, almost like a news anchor. It's a shame, I'm sure the content of the book is really interesting.
