Featuring illustrations and personal accounts from both Royalist and Parliamentarian supporters, this is the untold story of the women of the English Civil War. The author includes accounts of Queen Henrietta Maria, Mary Bankes and Anne Fairfax alongside the experiences of ordinary women and young girls. From women of the highest social status to the lowest, the author examines how the English Civil War affected the lives of women of all classes and how they coped with unfamiliar and frightening responsibilities, loss and bereavement, divided families, exile, and financial ruin.
