Best known as Henry V's Agincourt bride from Shakespeare's Henry V, Catherine de Valois was an extraordinary woman of faith, courage, and conviction in an age of politically powerful women.
A younger daughter to King Charles VI of France terrorized by his mental illness, Princess Catherine survived the ravages of his schizophrenia, a civil war at home, and King Henry's war with France to become one of England's most fascinating and courageous queens. Her second marriage to Owen Tudor gave England a new dynasty through her grandson, King Henry VII.
Meet the real Catherine and discover the beautiful true story that launched the most famous dynasty in history.
Richard Mann’s narration was excellent, the background music and sound effects were quite good and contributed a great deal to a very pleasurable experience.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. Since my first experience was so good, Catherine de Valois gets 5 stars!
