Злобная тетка: роман Хозяйка Англии

Этот читальный год, похоже, целиком будет посвящен Ричертам (то есть герцогам нормандским), а также их родственникам. От Вильгельма Завоевателя я плавно перешла к Матильде, его внучке. Под ужасной, как водится, обложкой романа Элизабет Чедвик “Хозяйка Англии” прячется вполне пристойный исторический роман.

Матильда делает Стефану секир башка

На дворе 12 век. Норманны окончательно уделали англосаксов и уверенно чувствуют себя в Англии. Матильда, дочь младшего сына Вильгельма Завоевателя, Генриха Боклерка, должна была наследовать трон после отца. Ее единственный брат погиб в кораблекрушении, и Генрих назначил ее наследницей, заставив баронов присягнуть ей на верность. Пока Генрих был жив, он выдал овдовевшую дочь замуж за Жоффруа Плантагенета, сына графа Анжуйского, причем жениху было всего 14. Правда, он оказался ценным приобретением.

После смерти короля Генриха не все готовы принять тётку на троне. Тем более, что есть другой претендент, Стефан Блуаский, сын Адель Нормандской, дочери Вильгельма Завоевателя. Общество раскалывается пополам. Стефан узурпирует трон Англии, а Матильда остаётся в Нормандии, да и там дела так себе.

Жоффруа плохо удался средневековому художнику-рукожопу

Этот период истории известен и изучен хорошо. Но одно дело сухие факты, а другое – исторический роман. Действительно ли у Матильды был такой гнусный характер, как пишут? Как складывались ее отношения с малолетним мужем? Кроме линии Матильды, вторая линия – о вдове ее отца, королеве Аделизе. Соплей совсем немного, жезлами автор не злоупотребляет, читается легко и интересно. А я перехожу к невестке Матильды, Алиеноре Аквитанской.

  1. I am curious to find out what blog system you are utilizing? I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  9. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  10. Someone necessarily lend a hand to make seriously articles I might state. This is the first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I amazed with the research you made to create this actual post amazing. Great activity!

But, what about this?consider this, what if you were to write a killer headlinetitle?content?wrote a catchier title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t good.ain’t saying your content isn’t gooddon’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a titleheadlinetitle that grabbed people’s attention?maybe get a person’s attention?want more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they createwrite post headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your postsblog a little livelier.

  12. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
