A Frankish princess, a Wessex queen - discover the remarkable true tale of Judith of West Francia!
As a daughter of King Charles of West Francia, Judith has always known that her destiny lies in a nunnery. But Judith longs for a very different life. She dreams of fine clothes, a household of her own, children and a handsome husband.

And he leaves her with the prospect of a long and often scandalous widowhood, as the determined young woman battles heartbreak and imprisonment while never giving up hope of finding happiness - no matter how far she has to travel to find it…
