Matilda of England
The
Legendary Women of World History Book 7

 

127
pages

in 1102 to King Henry of England and Queen Matilda of Scotland,

meant to unify an England still divided by her grandfather’s conquest
in 1066. When the 1120 White Ship Disaster made her the only
surviving child of her parents, Matilda suddenly became heiress to
the English throne in a time when the old Saxon Witan, not the king’s
Will, still decided the succession.

her own right and be inspired!

Hypatia
of Alexandria
The
Legendary Women of World History Book 8

 

105
pages
 
As
the western world fell into darkness, she dared defend the
light.
Born
in 355 CE in the aftermath of Constantine’s reign, Hypatia of
Alexandria lived in a collapsing Roman Empire, a world where
obedience to religious authorities trumped science, where reason and
logic threatened the new world order. It was a world on the edge of
the Dark Ages, a world deciding the question of science verses
religion, freedom verses orthodoxy, tolerance verses hate.

For
over 40 years, Hypatia stood between the dark ages and the light of
classical philosophy, arts, and sciences. Though none of her books
survived the aggressive book burnings of religious zealots, her
legacy remains that of one of the greatest scientists of all
time.

This
is her fascinating true story.

intelligence, beauty, and charm won her a place as his secretary and
