It was said amongst the good people of England that the very angels wept with envy at Richard I's coronation. The world had never seen such a king before, and surely never would again. This was a true knight of so much regal magnificence; so tall, so handsome. Surely, born to rule! Alas, Richard's subjects had no idea of the truly dark side of this great king. The king who cared nothing for his subjects, and everything for satisfying his own wants and needs. No matter who had to suffer to ensure his satisfaction.

Neither did the people of England know much of the women who shaped this glittering king. His mother; Eleanor of Aquitaine. Queen of France and England. Johanna Plantagenet, his sister and Queen of Sicily. And above all, his only wife. Berengaria of Navarre; Queen of England and Cyprus. The only Queen of England never to set foot in the country she ruled.

The legend of the Lionheart has resonated down the years. Even today, everybody knows the tale of the great, the chivalrous Lionheart. The warrior and the lover. The king who began the great medieval tradition of chivalry. Yet this novel is so very much more than just the story of the Lionheart. This is the story of the women who made the great man. The three queens who ruled the king. A tale of love, found and lost. Of adventure and tragedy. Of joy and despair. Of intrigue and the triumph of hope over adversity. Of friendship that began in prejudice and ended in the meeting of true hearts. And above all, a story of romance.

It is a tale that began 800 years ago, and still finds an echo in every woman's heart today.

There is an old Nordic proverb that says, "Inside every woman is a queen. Talk to the woman, and the queen will answer." Truly, this was never more so than when it is applied to the Three Queens of Richard the Lionheart.
