MATILDA Empress, Queen, Warrior

by | Read by Jennifer M. Dixon

History • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Jennifer Dixon narrates this audiobook on the life of twelfth-century Empress Matilda in an expressive and engaged tone that transport listeners to an earlier time. As the only legitimate daughter of Henry I, ruler of England and Normandy, and the widow of Henry V, ruler of the Romans, Empress Matilda played an important role in political affairs--both in her own right, and through her husband and son. In her struggle to fulfill her father's wish that she succeed him, she forged strong alliances and engaged in military strategy. Dixon's clear enunciation allows listeners to distinguish every royal and aristocratic personality. Her varied pacing mirrors Empress Matilda's relentless struggles for power, and her tone captures the resilience of an inspirational woman.
