E49: The Queen and The Mistress
In this show, author and historian Gemma Hollman joins Deb in a lively discussion regarding Philipa of Hainault and Alice Perrers - the Queen and the mistress of King Edward III, in a time long before the Tudors.
The stories of the women are so diametrically opposed yet they shared many common traits and interests. Their stories bring to light many of the powerful women and the struggles faced by females; royals and commoners alike.
Gemma Hollman is the author of The Queen and the Mistress (Nov 2022) and Royal Witches. She is a medievalist and women's history enthusiast. Runs runs the Just History Posts blog and is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
