Isabella the She Wolf of France becoming a TV Series
Good morning everyone! Or good evening depending on
which time zone you’re in. I found out exciting news from author Alison Weir on
her Facebook page. I asked her since she wrote a biography on Isabella the She
Wolf of France would she ever write a historical fiction novel about Isabella.
I also asked her also how the filming of the Eleanor of Aquitaine series is
going based on her books. Below is Alison Weir’s response.
Notions I’m not sure about a novel, as I’ve just written about Isabella again
in Queens of the Age of Chivalry, out in November, but Starz has just optioned
the biography and are keen to make a TV series. Despite delays and a backlog of
projects due to the pandemic, they are pressing ahead with the Eleanor series.
This news has made my morning. It makes me happy
that the Eleanor of Aquitaine series is still happening, but what’s even better
is we’ll see an Isabella the She Wolf of France series. We’ll see an accurate
series about Isabella being the strong, intelligent queen she was instead of
this Jezebel caricature that many portray her as. Isabella had her faults like
everyone else does, but her husband Edward II was not just a terrible husband
but a weak king and a tyrant.
The Isabella, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Catherine De
Medici and Nzinga TV series coming to Starz it’ll open a flood gate of other
series about royal women that haven’t been done before. While seeing shows
about the Tudors and Plantagenet’s are great, we’ve seen a ton of shows and
books about them already. It’s nice to
finally branch out into the world.
