    1. A woman may be the power behind a man, but she is not allowed to take power for herself This book is the story of two women, one an Empress and one who was Queen of England and begins in 1125 Matilda, married off at a young age is summoned home from Germany after the death of her husband the Emperor Old king Henry may have plenty of bastards, but Matilda is his only legitimate heir and Henry wants her married well and to someone who can sire sons Much to Matilda s displeasure, he picks the very [...]

    2. It s pretty much a given that when a new Elizabeth Chadwick novel is announced, I preorder it And when it arrives, everything gets jettisoned so that I can read it right away Very few authors do that to me any , and this one wasn t any different I loved reading about Matilda in this and found her a fascinating and believable woman very few authors bother to take her out of the shrewish bitch that most history cast her as Also, the contrast with Adeliza is terrific, and THE PROPOSAL scene OMG, ta [...]

    3. From the first that I learned about Henry and Eleanor thanks to The Lion in Winter and by default Matilda and Stephen, that period of history seized my tween attention span and has never really let go I ve read many works of fiction surrounding these people and events, and I figured it was about time I should try this author I heard she just keeps getting better and better with every book and since this was her latest Well shrug First off, I don t put any credence in what she uses for a large po [...]

    4. Chadwick really knows how to make history personal and alive She makes you feel what was at stake for the people involved, know their losses and fears, and she fills in the gaps between the known facts so plausibly Lady of the English tells the story of two women very close to power but ultimately unable to wield it in a man s world The two women are very different King Henry I s wife, Adeliza, is soft, empathetic, and physically weak She is just looking for peace and stability, but is very loya [...]

    5. H muito tempo atr s, eu era uma leitora de apenas 1 g nero fic o hist rica Apenas lia este g nero, torcendo o nariz a todos os outros, at ter apanhado umas quantas barretadas com uma autora que eu adorava, e me ter afastado Tamb m porque, de tanto ler dentro do mesmo g nero, fiquei em burnout nem queria ver livros de hist fic ao p de mim Durante uns tempos mantive me afastada deste g nero de literatura, com algum medo de n o conseguir voltar.Mas, eis que aparece este livro, que me tirou por comp [...]

    6. This book is a retelling of the life of Empress Matilda also known as Maude It presents her sympathetically, as a strong woman who was frustrated by the limitations put on her ambition by a patriarchal society It contrasts Matilda s life with that of her stepmother, the virtuous Adeliza of Louvain Adeliza seems to start out as a secondary character but gains in importance as the novel progresses While both women go through two marriages and experience lack of offspring followed by successful chi [...]

    7. Read an Elizabeth Chadwick novel You ll love her has been the chorus of many of my friends and acquaintances in recent months after I made the shocking revelation that I d never read one of her novels I don t know why, in all honesty, I just never did With my friends voices in mind, I will admit to being very unsure of this novel before I started reading it What if it had been oversold What if I was underwhelmed If I didn t like it, would my mates all think I was weird Turns out I had nothing to [...]

    8. No one does medieval historical fiction quite like Elizabeth Chadwick, and her latest novel, Lady of the English is just one example of her enormous talent for bringing the past to life Matilda has just returned to England after the death of husband, the German Emperor and is welcomed by her father, King Henry I and his wife, Adeliza The two women become fast friends and a true companionship begins Before King Henry s death he makes his noblemen pledge their allegiance to his daughter Matilda a [...]

    9. Caveat I did not finish this book I m not going to finish this book So maybe this isn t a fair review but I picked up this book because since I grew up in a British colony, I am a huge fan of English history Not only the picture on the cover, but the advertising led me to believe that this was the story of a strong woman No If there were fewer characters and it was set in modern times, this is a Lifetime Network movie of the week waiting to happen In this book, women are victims and there is no [...]

    10. Another fantastic read from Elizabeth ChadwickCan t wait for her take on Eleanor and Henry in the upcoming trilogy Is it a bit unfair to start asking when it is going to be out Loved the use of Matilda Brian and Adeliza Will to tell the two sides of the story, and one of the highlights was the shining energy of Matilda s son Henry, destined to become Henry II.

    11. I decided to read this book because a quote on the back from Sharron Kay Pennman compared the author to Dorothy Dunnett I can only assume that SKP either did not read this book, has not read Dunnett, or has confused her with Phillipa Gregory That said, sometimes you want a trashy novelbut this woman considers sessions with her psychic to be research Seek not for truth in these pages.

    12. It is 1135 The Old King, Henry I, is dead and his heir is his daughter Matilda, former Empress of Germany and a determined and intelligent Queen in Waiting However, due to the inherent misogyny of the medieval era and the unwillingness of the Barons of England and Normandy to bend the knee to a woman, Matilda is unjustly usurped from her throne by her cousin Stephen and so begins the Anarchy a civil war that consumes both kingdoms in the inferno of war, famine and rampant murder and robbery Desp [...]

    13. Elizabeth Chadwick purports to tell the story of Empress Matilda Maud and her cousin Stephen s battle for the throne of England and Normandy upon the death of her father Henry I I m an avid reader of English medieval historical fiction, but I ve long avoided reading any of Chadwick s books after reading many unfavorable comments about her work And now I understand those comments Comparing her work to an A list author of historical fiction such as Sharon Kay Penman is akin to comparing Jerry Lewi [...]

    14. Elizabeth Chadwick s latest release tells the story of two women who at one point in their lives held the title of Lady of the English Adeliza, queen of Henry I, and her stepdaughter, Matilda, Henry s heir.Adeliza and Matilda are very different women Adeliza plays the role of a consort to perfection, with one exception she fails to provide an heir This means that Matilda has to take on an impossible role that of reigning queen at a time when women were considered unfit to rule While Matilda stru [...]

    15. I am hooked on Elizabeth Chadwick She could pen comic books and I d be the first in line to buy them There are few authors in the historical fiction genre who bring the past to life in such a vivid fashion and Chadwick is one of the best Along with Eleanor of Aquitaine and of course Elizabeth I, the Empress Matilda has always fascinated me as yet another strong woman seeking to dictate her own destiny I actually have to thank the brilliant Ellis Peters Brother Cadfael mysteries for causing me to [...]

    16. Sharon Penman is perhaps my favorite author of historical novels, but sometimes I don t feel like the investment of time and brain cells she requires of me This was my first Chadwick historical but certainly hasn t been my last and I was delighted to find that she, like Penman, offers up very enjoyable, readable historical fiction, breathing life and humanity into the historical time and characters without sacrificing accuracy, but with a somewhat less epic scope than Penman.Here in Chadwick s t [...]

    17. Is it possible that Elizabeth Chadwick just keeps getting better and better with each successive novel Yes, it is, because Lady of the English is her best effort to date and that s considerable for the queen of historical fiction.Lady of the English is the story of Matilda, arguably England s first queen The daughter of Henry I, Matilda was married off of course to a young age to the Holy Roman Emperor While Matilda spent her younger years in Germany learning to be an Empress, her older brother [...]

    18. I read this book because it was reviewed by Sharon Kay Penman, but it is clear that she was simply being polite when she recommended it The book is a pale comparison to Penman s own When Christ and his Saints Slept , and her subsequent treatments of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine in Time and Chance and The Devil s Brood The characters are so narrowly drawn and the historical descriptions so lacking that there is no depth and no real reason to become involved or even care about the players The [...]

    19. It s been a while since I ve read anything by Chadwick, but now I remember why I enjoy her novels so much Her characters are well researched and fleshed out in a way that makes you feel as if you are watching events unfold before your eyes Prior to reading this book, I had no knowledge of the empress Matilda, daughter of King Henry I, or his wife, Adeliza So often in history we learn about the men involved, but the women are only a side note, with their greatest accomplishments being the bearing [...]

    20. If she thought a man was a fool, she said so to his face in front of others, and gave no quarter She was tall, slender, beautiful, desirable This is how Empress Mathilda is described This is the woman this novel is about She was the daughter and the only surviving heir to Henry I The men of England got on their knees three times in front of her and three times, swore to uphold her as their queen When her father died, however, they upheld her cousin Stephen instead Mathilda was enraged and thus, [...]

    21. This was a great historical story of Henry I s daughter, Matilda, and her fight for the English throne I love Elizabeth Chadwick s books as I feel I get a fantastic history lesson while enjoying myself She sticks to the facts as much as possible and the stories are very real This time period and the circumstances of this particular situation are honestly rather sad and frustrating The ending with Will Adeliza I found to be very sad but I could also understand Adeliza s position to some extent I [...]

    22. Elizabeth Chadwick is an amazing story teller an amazing author She can bring life to those she writes about like no other She takes you to the time and place with all the colors so vivid and it becomes all consuming I am lost from the moment I open the cover to the time I close it.

    23. Lady of the English is set in the 1100 s, and follows the lives of two very different women, Matilda and Adeliza.Matilda, the only daughter of Henry I, was used as a political pawn for all of her life As a young child she was married to the Holy Roman Emperor, Henry V, until his death in 1125 resulted in her father using her again to make a political marriage, this time with the Count of Anjou Following the untimely death of her brother William, Matilda was regarded by some of the English barons [...]

    24. I ve read a handful of Elizabeth Chadwick s novels and loved every one of it She has mastered blending facts with fiction and succeeded in making the readers look back to the lives of the historical figures she s immortalized through her books I have never been this inflamed with interest in 12th century England Europe until after discovering her in Shadows and Strongholds So far she hasn t disappointed me or spoiled my newfound love for this era, which means I d probably see of King Stephen, E [...]

    25. I knew the story well before I picked the book up.In 1069 Henry I died without a legitimate male heir He named his daughter, Matilda, as his heir, but when he died his nephew, Stephen, took the throne.Had Henry named a new heir on his deathbed Was Stephen a usurper Could a woman rule The rival claimants to the throne would wage war for yearsI first read the story in Sharon Penman s Christ and his Saints Slept , but reading it again appealed, and I was very curious to see how Elizabeth Chadwick w [...]

    26. Matilda is summoned home after her husband the Emperor dies Her brother has died and King Henry I has only a daughter for heir He tries to find suitable husband for her and chooses young Geoffrey, Count of Anjou Matilda is less than pleased with the decision but knows that duty comes first.Adeliza of Louvain is Henry I s second wife and close to Matilda s age Despite Henry having bastards fron numerous women, Adeliza seems to be barren much to her distress But everything changes when Henry dies [...]

    27. 4.5 Malthida is not Ali nor and Chadwick wrote her personality perfectly in my opinion The Empress was cold, domineering, strong willed but ultimately fair and kind Where Ali nor would have been like water sliding through her enemy, Mathilda was akin to a boulder or a rock who would destroy everything that stand in her way The sad thing is that had she been born a man, she would have been accepted and respected as a king because she had all the required for the job What I liked most with the boo [...]

    28. Chadwick is a great HF author and I generally know I will really enjoy her books And she tends to write strong female characters, but it in this one she gives us the two sides of these historical women These women, especially Matilda, take what they believe is their God given right and run with it, yet because they are female and they live in a male dominated world they are forced to face barriers and inherent issues not known to the men While I was entertained as I read I also felt I was being [...]

    29. I ve finally read a book about Empress Mathilda something I longed to do for quite a while as she seemed very interesting and I ve finally read a Chadwick book I never knew which one to pick first so when this book was announced I knew that this was the one I was not dissapointed I especially loved the last 100 pages, which I read quicker than the others I do hope to buy read about this period of time once I ve decreased my TBR pile a little p.s to those who have read this as well I can recomme [...]
