  • Tracy Borman tells this story with a steady eye and a steady hand, tracing what can be known of Matilda's part in the events that were to change the course of English history

    Helen Castor, Literary Review
  • Borman shows that Matilda was a capable regent and political operator... Matilda remains relevant: one legacy is her bloodline, which still rules in Britain today

    Sunday Times
  • A richly layered treatment of a stormy reign

    Kirkus
  • Borman moves deftly between the difficult written sources... The often scanty details of Matilda's life are given more rounded form by viewing them in context

    History Today
  • Borman has expertly forged an absorbing biography from fragments of her personal history

    Independent
