Three Sisters, Three Queens
Three Sisters, Three Queens | Philippa Gregory
“There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other.” From the #1 New York Times bestselling author behind the upcoming Starz original series The White Princess, a gripping new Tudor story featuring King Henry VIII’s sisters Mary and Margaret, along with Katherine of Aragon, vividly revealing the pivotal roles the three queens played in Henry VIII’s kingdom. When Katherine of Aragon is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look, each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined—with Margaret’s younger sister Mary—to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France. United by family loyalties and affections, the three queens find themselves set against each other. Katherine commands an army against Margaret and kills her husband James IV of Scotland. But Margaret’s boy becomes heir to the Tudor throne when Katherine loses her son. Mary steals the widowed Margaret’s proposed husband, but when Mary is widowed it is her secret marriage for love that is the envy of the others. As they experience betrayals, dangers, loss, and passion, the three sisters find that the only constant in their perilous lives is their special bond, more powerful than any man, even a king.

I knew very little about Margaret Tudor and almost nothing of James IV prior to reading this book. I really want to learn more about James IV - he seemed like a particularly interesting man from his brief part in this narrative. Once again the author note and bibliography at the end are great and give me resources to satisfy my curiosity.

After my obsession with The White Princess, this read was necessary! I binged through this fictional account of little-understood queen Margaret Tudor with bated breath. While I felt like a already knew quite a lot about the Tudors, this book pointed out the gaps in my knowledge. I enjoyed the ride!

Always a fan of P.G.‘s novels, but this is one of the first ones that introduced me to a woman of Tudor English royalty for ostensibly the first time! This one left me both craving more information about the historical woman and feeling a bit flustered that i hadn‘t already known more. The novel ends a bit earlier in the historical timeline than I would have guessed it would, so a little of the conclusion doesn‘t feel quite as neat as usual.

One of the things I love about Philippa Gregory is that I feel right with her characters whom ever they are. I‘m listening to this one on audio book, and I‘m loving it. I‘m absolutely enthralled. I love how Margaret is growing and changing. It‘s so good. While I‘m listening, I‘m scrapping, my hobby. I‘ve not read a book while I crafted before. What a fool am I?!? I think I‘m hooked!

1. Henry VIII's older sister Margaret is sent to marry the King of Scotland but can't stop comparing her life to those of her sister in law Katherine of Aragon and younger sister Mary.
2. I couldn't stop eating gummy bears when I was pregnant! I was buying huge bags!

I adore Philippa Gregory and always have. Another wonderful book from her about important figures in history of whom very little is recorded. Because, of course, they're women. 🙄 Gregory always hits it out of the park, entwining fact and her interpretation of the characters to make great stories. This is about Henry VIII's sisters and his first wife. I recommend all of Gregory's Tudor stories!

OK technically this is two sisters and a sister in law...

Vihrig ...and it's really only about and from the viewpoint of Margaret. I was very disappointed. 1y

I have always enjoyed Philippa Gregory novels. They are well researched without being overwhelmed with minute details. Three Sisters, Three Queens runs parallel to the Other Boleyn Girl and is told from the point of view of King Henry's sister Margaret Tudor in Scotland. This was my first Gregory on audio and I loved it. Always a sucker for a British accent.

Finally finished this Long book. It was pretty good. I know a lot more about Margaret Tudor & her two sisters. Although..... why is she holding a monkey here in this portrait I have no idea?

monogamist_reader @Engard88 Unfortunately it is not one of her best works. It's very repetitive and it took me a lot of effort to finish it. So, my answer is no. It's not worth it. 😭 2y

Listened to this on audio, when your brother is Henry VIII things happen! Historical fiction that shows how queens and all women were just pawns in the royal pedigrees. This book really tries to show how women were never thought to be part of the royal ruling, they were just the baby makers and if it was a girl, well let's try again. Women, we have come a long way. Queen Elizabeth is a miracle!

I was a little antisocial at @LizzyM 's house today so I could finish this book before 2016 ended. It was my only bookish Christmas gift and not something I would have bought myself. But, I really enjoyed it. Especially because we vacationed in Scotland in 2008 and visited many of the castles mentioned.

I really love Philippa Gregory. I can always count on her for well-researched, page-turning historical fiction. I enjoyed this one despite the fact that there were many times that I grew tired of the constantly whining and unlikeable protagonist, Margaret Tudor. I also found it very interesting reading about the Anne Boleyn saga from a different point of view.

It seems to me now that we were three girls together with so much to hope for. And that it is a hard world that has brought the three of us to this. When men have authority over women. Women can be brought very low.
And they will be brought very low. We spend our time admiring and envying each other, when we should have been guiding and protecting each other.

What a nice morning finishing this book and enjoying a cup of tea. ☕️Told from the often-unheard point of view of Margaret, older sister to King Henry VIII, this was an interesting story of sisterly love, betrayal, and feminism during Tudor times. 👑
