“The Strangled Queen” by Maurice Druon

Publish date: 1955

Genre: Historical fiction

The second book from a series “The Accursed Kings”.  King Phillip is dead, and now his son Louis X sits on the throne. His wife is imprisoned in the Chateau Gaillard for her adultery.  Seeking to remarry and father a male heir, Louis puts his own plan in motion.

I enjoyed this book. Maurice Druon once again did an incredible job.  The storyline is well thought.  It is easy to read and characters are nicely presented. I could easily imagine them and think about what would they do. The story caught my attention and left me interested until the very end. I can’t wait to read next part of the series.

My rate: 8/10
