Isabella of Valois

Post  Susan Abernethy on Sat Jan 31, 2015 1:17 pm

The Hundred Years War was started in 1337 by King Edward III of England, grandfather of King Richard II. The constant fighting was taking its toll on England and France. Both King Richard and the French King Charles VI were looking for a truce, if not a complete cessation of hostilities. Richard’s wife, Anne of Bohemia had died in 1394 and it made sense for him to marry a French princess to cement any agreement. Talks began shortly after Anne’s death of a marriage between Richard and Princess Isabella of Valois.   read more here:  http://thefreelancehistorywriter.com/2015/01/30/isabella-of-valois-queen-of-england/

Thanks for sharing this!   queen
In fiction, Isabella appears in The Queen's Secret by Jean Plaidy and The Hollow Crown by Margaret Campbell Barnes.  (Both novels have been reissued)  
For younger readers, The Gentle Falcon by Hilda Lewis is about a young English woman who becomes Isabella's lady-in-waiting.  This older novel is out of print; I borrowed the book from the university library where I was studying for my master's.  (The library had a dedicated section for children's and teen books)

Isabella also plays a role if Hella Haase's novel In a Dark Wood Wandering, about Charles Duke of Orleans. She was his first wife and he was her second husband. She died giving birth to his child.
