Her route to the throne is paved with treason… 1330.
Philippa of Hainault will be married to King Edward III yet she’s penniless and powerless. England quivers within the clutches of the Dowager Queen Isabella and her darkly bold lover Lord Mortimer whereas her husband rots in penitentiary, a prisoner at Mortimer’s hand. it's going to take a brave younger guy to emerge from the shadows and get up in contrast bold pair.
Philippa won’t chill out and spot Edward puppeteered. She is decided to determine justice performed. It’s her phrases whispered into the younger King Edward’s ear that would see the conflict for England’s throne commence.
Mightier have fallen. Treason threatens. The victor’s prize is England…failure is death.
It’s a robust union that ties Philippa and Edward during this darkly pleasing brief tale yet will it usually be so?
