|Summary, etc.:|| The riveting history of a beautiful queen, a shocking murder, a papal trial--and a reign as triumphant as any in the Middle Ages. As courageous as Eleanor of Aquitaine, as astute and determined as Elizabeth I of England, Joanna, Queen of Naples, was the only female monarch in her time to rule in her own name.
