Porter definitely did her research homework, which is challenging when it comes to writing about an age before printing presses and widespread book distribution.

The King's Mother: Lady Elfrida: England's First Queen

#ad
#ad - Raised in the shadow of a strange little building and told from a very young age that it housed the bones of the long-dead kings of Mercia, it's little wonder that my curiosity in the Anglo-Saxons ran riot. The king’s mother is the story of a woman who has been censured by history as both a whore and a murderer but was neither.

The widowed Lady Elfrida has achieved the impossible. And of course the Anglo Saxon Chronicles. She’s ensured her twelve-year-old son has become king, despite the gruesome murder of his predecessor and half-brother. While many blame the king’s mother, she looks to two rival noblemen as the real perpetrators.

Even with the reappearance of an unwelcome enemy on england’s shores, the young king, Viking warriors, who attack and threaten the safety and security of England, and specifically, the two noblemen are far from resigned to Lady Elfrida’s power. As her son takes the final steps to become king in actions as well as name, she’s increasingly isolated by the deaths of allies and the scheming ways of others, including the king.

The King's Mother: Lady Elfrida: England's First Queen #ad - Resentful of her continuing influence, Lady Elfrida faces banishment from Court with both fierce determination and acquiescence.

No woman had ever held so much power and lost it on the whim of her son, the king. Raised in the shadow of a strange little building and told from a very young age that it housed the bones of the long-dead kings of Mercia, it's little wonder that my curiosity in the Anglo-Saxons ran riot.

Desperate to be welcomed back to court, she risks all to make an ally of England’s Viking enemy. Failure risks exile. I can only blame my parents!I write A LOT. And of course the Anglo Saxon Chronicles.
