Poll: Who is your favorite "She Wolf"?

Inquiring minds want to know...who is your favorite naughty Queen? Which villainous Queen do you like to read about?

Catherine de Medici, Margaret of Anjou, Elizabeth Woodville or Isabella of France

The poll is on the left hand side of my blog....please cast your vote!


  1. I have to go with Elizabeth Woodville simply because I love the Edward IV/Richard III era! But they're all naughty and fun to read about!

  2. It was a tough choice between Margaret of Anjou and Elizabeth Woodville but Margaret won in the end.

  4. Elizabeth Woodville can only be regarded as naughty if one accepts uncritically every negative thing that is said about her (like her supposed role in the execution is the Earl of Desmond, an accusation that didn't arise until the 16th century and isn't supported by any source in her lifetime), and Margaret of Anjou, with a marginally sane husband and a son whose interest she was determined to protect, was in the most unenviable situation a queen could be in. I don't know all that much about Catherine of Medici. So naturally, I'll go for Isabella!

  5. Sorry--I didn't mean to be anonymous in the above post!

  6. I don't really have a favorite I guess... I chose Elizabeth Woodville because I am reading about her now in Figures in Silk by Vanora Bennett, so her story is the most fresh in my mind at the moment.

    Vanora Bennett's POV in this novel is definitely anti-Woodville, but I have read books that give the queen and her family more credit.

  7. Like this poll - I go with Catherine
