    Marie-Thérèse, The Ruined Princess

    Marie-Thérèse, The Ruined Princess

    Marie-Thérèse-Charlotte of France's family was dethroned and executed during the French Revolution, and how did the teenage Marie react? She just kept going forward, no matter how many times her family got kicked off the French throne.

    Joan, The Seemingly Normal Queen

    Joan, The Seemingly Normal Queen

    Queen Joan I of Navarre was totally normal. She became a country's first queen-regnant at the old age of one, then ran away to France with her mother, and made an actually happy political marriage somehow. Here is the story of the first queen-regnant of Navarre.

    Blanche II, The Murdered Queen

    Blanche II, The Murdered Queen

    Blanche II of Navarre was just supposed to be another royal bride who went on to have a million kids. But then, her mother and brother died, and she found herself murdered. This is a really good story I wish we had more information about.

    Margaret Pole, The Last Plantagenet

    Margaret Pole, The Last Plantagenet

    Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury, was one of the very few women of her time to become an English noble in her own right. She could've just been an insignificant noble, but once her father, brother, and son all decided to become traitors, Margaret was obviously going to be talked about. From a little girl during the Wars of the Roses to a trusted governess of Henry VIII's daughter, Margaret certainly had a crazy life.

    Marie, The Really Tall Queen

    Marie, The Really Tall Queen

    Marie de Guise was a Queen of Scots who did everything. We mostly remember her for being Mary, Queen of Scots's mother, but she did a lot more than just give birth to Mary. Marie loved France, hated Scotland and was about six feet tall.

    Lettice, The Queen's Rival Cousin

    Lettice, The Queen's Rival Cousin

    Lettice Knollys, Countess of Essex and Leicster, was definitely related to Queen Elizabeth I through Anne Boleyn, and possibly related to Elizabeth through Henry VIII. But then, Lettice fell in love with someone who just happened to be the person Elizabeth was in love with, which made the next thirty years horrible. The poor woman could never catch a break.

Wonderful and fascinating

I have always loved listening to historical podcasts and YouTube channels, especially ones that focus on women but for some reason, they’re surprisingly hard to find. I stumbled onto this podcast purely by chance and fell in love. While there’s not a lot of episodes currently out, the improvement from the first episode until the most recent one when I’m writing this, Marie-Thérèse, is evident. I look forward to seeing this podcast grow and continue to share stories of fascinating women from history!
