9780099549178: King's Mistress, Queen's Servant: The Life and Times of Henrietta Howard
Críticas:

"It is the great strength of Tracy Borman's engaging new biography that, like Alison Weir and David Starkey before her, she manages to throw new light on the influence and careers of women in European courts" (Stella Tillyard Sunday Times)

"Borman has certainly found an unsung and unusual heroine, what elevates her biography above the others in its genre is the author's sense of humour" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Tracy Borman can tell a good story... [and] her subject is a gift" ( The Economist)

"A short and zippy portrait of George II's long-suffering paramour" (Tim Martin Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year)

"Tracy Borman handles her voluminous material with easy grace" ( Independent on Sunday)

Críticas:

Tracy Borman studied and taught history at the University of Hull and was awarded a PhD in 1997. She went on to a successful career in heritage and has worked for a range of historic properties and national heritage organisations, including the National Archives and English Heritage. She is now Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust and also works part-time for Historic Royal Palaces. Tracy has regularly appeared on television and radio, and has featured in a range of magazine and newspaper articles. She is a regular contributor to history magazines, including articles in BBC History Magazine on the history of beauty and eighteenth-century 'It' Girls'. In addition, she also gives public talks and lectures on a wide range of subjects.

Descripción Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Henrietta Howard, later Countess of Suffolk, was the long-term mistress and confidante of King George II. She was also, as Tracy Borman s wonderfully readable biography reveals, a dedicated patron of the arts; a lively and talented intellectual in her own right; a victim of adultery; a passionate advocate for the rights of women long before the dawn of feminism. Above all she was a woman of reason in an Age of Reason. The mark that this enigmatic and largely neglected royal mistress left on the society and culture of early Georgian England was to resonate well beyond the confines of the court, and can still be felt today.
