#ad - The king’s mother is the story of a woman who has been censured by history as both a whore and a murderer but was neither. The widowed Lady Elfrida has achieved the impossible. While many blame the king’s mother, she looks to two rival noblemen as the real perpetrators. Even with the reappearance of an unwelcome enemy on england’s shores, who attack and threaten the safety and security of England, and specifically, Viking warriors, the young king, the two noblemen are far from resigned to Lady Elfrida’s power.

As her son takes the final steps to become king in actions as well as name, she’s increasingly isolated by the deaths of allies and the scheming ways of others, including the king.
