    The daughters of Spain's Ferdinand and Isabella were women of character and conviction, but Katherine is mostly remembered for her abandonment in favour of Henry VIII's seductive mistress, while Juana is portrayed as 'the Mad', a queen who kept her husband's coffin beside her for years. Described by The Spectator as a 'vivid and sympathetic book', Sister Queens examines how their dreams of love and power quickly dissolved in the face of duplicity and betrayal. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
