Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'She-Wolves: England's Early Queens'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“She-Wolves: England’s Early Queens”
With Tudor England and medieval Europe’s bloody history of battles and political intrigue, cunning and ruthless kings generally dominated the thrones. Women were supposedly relegated to the frilly fringes as court ornaments, except for an exceptional few who sought to rule. They were looked upon as monstrosities and reviled as “she-wolves.”
In the compelling and fascinating BBC series “She-Wolves: England’s Early Queens” (due out on DVD Tuesday), Cambridge history professor Helen Castor, author of the award-winning book “Blood & Roses,” explores the lives of seven English queens who challenged men’s power and changed the course of British history.
Told over three one-hour episodes, the series focuses on the lives and times of these extraordinary women, delving into their relationships, the politics and wars of the time and strictures of religion and society.
