The Lives of the Queens of England, Volume 9 by Agnes Strickland (1796 - 1874) and Elizabeth Strickland (1794-1875).


The Lives of the Queens of England is a multi-volumed work attributed to Agnes Strickland, though it was mostly researched and written by her sister Elisabeth. These volumes give biographies of the queens of England from the Norman Conquest in 1066. Although by today's standards, it is not seen as a very scholarly work, the Stricklands used many sources that had not been used before.

Volume nine includes the biography of Mary Beatrice of Modena. (Summary by Ann Boulais)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/livesqueensengl12strigoog
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

They sure do leave us at a cliffhanger, don't they? (Or did you choose the section cutoff?)

I try to choose a good spot to stop before I start reading. This time I chose wisely! Most of the time, not so much. Thanks Tricia! :D
