Royal Witches: From Joan of Navarre to Elizabeth Woodville

A paperback copy of my book. If you would like your copy signed, please message justhistoryposts@gmail.com after purchase. “An important and timely book looking at royal women who faced envy and political attack in the guise of accusations of witchcraft.” — Philippa Gregory, #1 New York Times bestselling author. Postage included, UK only.


Joan of Navarre was the richest woman in the land, at a time when war-torn England was penniless.
Eleanor Cobham was the wife of a weak king’s uncle and her husband was about to fall from grace.
Jacquetta Woodville was a personal enemy of Warwick the Kingmaker, who was about to take his revenge.
Elizabeth Woodville was the widowed mother of a child king, fighting Richard III for her children’s lives.

In Royal Witches, Gemma Hollman explores the lives of these four unique women, looking at how rumours of witchcraft brought them to their knees in a time when superstition and suspicion was rife.

Philippa of Hainault was Queen of England for forty-one years. Her marriage to Edward III, when they were both teenagers, was more political transaction than romantic wedding, but it would turn into a partnership of deep affection. The mother of twelve children, she was the perfect medieval queen: pious, unpolitical and fiercely loyal to both her king and adopted country.

Alice Perrers entered court as a young widow and would soon catch the eye of an ageing king whose wife was dying. Born to a family of London goldsmiths, this charismatic and highly intelligent woman would use her position as the king’s favourite to build up her own portfolio of land, wealth and prestige, only to see it all come crashing down as Edward himself neared death.

The Queen and the Mistress is a story of female power and passion, and how two very different women used their skills and charms to navigate a tumultuous royal court – and win the heart of the same man.
