Wife of the Bad King: Isabella of Angouleme (Queens Series)

As this podcast continues to evolve, I decided this season, I would do my very first themed season. Queens! We’ll learn about a marvelous collection of queens from various guests. In this episode we look at the second wife of King John – son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. To guide us on this journey of discovery, Rebecca is joined by historian and author Sharon Bennett Connelly.

Sharon’s book, Ladies of the Magna Carta: Women of Influence in the Thirteenth Century England highlights the life of today’s topic – Isabella of Angouleme.
