The siblings start to see what kind of "lady" Bathorys is. Cruel, had an obsession with staying young and beautiful and assumed had a blood lust.
The siblings carry this movie. I thought the actors did a very good job and everything seemed to be of that period. Now, some facts. During this time it wasn't uncommon for royalty to treat their workers peasants with cruelty.
In fact, there is little to no evidence that Lady Bathory committed such crimes as described throughout history.
Evidence of any kind was burned. In fact some were paid to testify against Bathory. She was also a Protestant, which would also have "cause" to have suspicious about her.
In today's courts she would never be convicted. Now when you think about Lady Bathory, take it with a grain of salt.
Do some research. Is she the blood countess that history tells? Or was she a typical Royal at the time made an example of by the King? Look at the facts not story's that have been passed down to keep people in fear of possible fictional.
I used the word fact in quotes because of possible misinterpretation of Countess Bathorys take.
People love monsters. Don't they? This was a more minimalist approach to the story of one of history's most mythical human monsters.
I have heard some say that she was no more evil than other nobles of her time, and was singled out for being Protestant.
There have been more opulent productions Erzsebet Bathory, such as Julie Delpy's and Juraj Jakubisko's about 10 years ago.
I thought it was pretty good, especially since it tried to personalize the children's relationship with the Countess, showing more dimensions to her than one sees in the more exploitive movies.
For a more expansive view, I recommend Delpy's and Jakubisko's films. The Csejte church or the castle of Csejte do not bear any markings of her possible grave.
The theory is consistent with Hungarian history at that time, which included religious and political conflicts, especially relating to the wars with the Ottoman Empire, the spread of Protestantism and the extension of Habsburg power over Hungary.
There are counter-arguments made against this theory. The most common motif of these works was that of the countess bathing in her victims' blood to retain beauty or youth.
They included no references to blood baths. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Hungarian countess.

It is rare to read a book which deals so thoroughly with a conflict spread over decades, where it is so hard to take sides. I found myself routing for both sides to survive which is a world with the brutality of this one, was a recipe for heartache.
As it was set around little known historical events rather than following a standard three act structure, every twist and turn took me by surprise.
Blood Queen was not even slightly what I expected. But when the only criticism I really have is that it was a different book to the one I was expecting, I can one disappointed.
I was reading the story and the historical notes at the same times, got to page 33 and had to stop. I was already annoyed because the map is incorrect.
Since when did entire now cities move to a completely different part of the country?! I did not appreciate the odd name choices because the author felt the real ones don't "flow".
Are you kidding me? But the single most annoying thing that made me put the book down for good is calling the monarch s King of Scotland instead of Scots.
Oh yes, and I was reading the story and the historical notes at the same times, got to page 33 and had to stop. Oh yes, and Westminster being called the "English government" whilst discussing the return of the Stone of Destiny.
There has not been an English government since Considering this was supposed to be the historical notes, I do not see any point in reading a book where the author makes so many very basic mistakes.
The level of irony is laughable when she claims Shakespeare has told a fake story, yet hers is "true". Will not read this author again.
Oct 08, S. I have never read a book by this author before and so, this book was a nice introduction to her style of writing.
I liked the fact that it corrected the story already familiar to readers of Shakespeare I am one of those readers but it also went into a little more detail, into what really went down with the Macbeths.
I really enjoyed learning a little more about Scotland and her history as I didn't know very much about the country; this is despite the fact that I am English personally with I have never read a book by this author before and so, this book was a nice introduction to her style of writing.
I really enjoyed learning a little more about Scotland and her history as I didn't know very much about the country; this is despite the fact that I am English personally with some Scottish blood in my veins somewhere!
So it was a nice read from that point of view. I thought the cover was very attractive too. I do want to read more books by this author in the future, so that will be something to look forward to.
Aug 25, Linda Humberstone rated it really liked it. This is more interesting and truer than Shakespeare's rendering of Macbeth and Duncan and their fights to win the crown of Scotland.
The story is mainly about their wives and how they fared as queens to the warring opponents. It emphasises their support for their husbands and also the very real dangers they, and their offspring, faced each time the tide turned in the wrong direction for them.
This was an easy read and I found it to be quite enlightening; life at the top certainly wasn't easy This is more interesting and truer than Shakespeare's rendering of Macbeth and Duncan and their fights to win the crown of Scotland.
This was an easy read and I found it to be quite enlightening; life at the top certainly wasn't easy when trying to retain a hold on the throne.
You also realise how Edward 1st gained control over Scotland by Malcolm 3rd's swearing an oath of fealty to him for his support against Macbeth.
I look forward to the next book by this author. I think I expected to like this more. I did enjoy it but I wasnt as on board with the story as I wanted to be.
Perhaps its because this is a really long time before my preferred historical period, I dont know. It could also be that its Scottish history and not English.
I did enjoy it but I probably had too high expectations from the beginning. There is also a scene of a brutal rape which I wasnt expecting and so caught me off guard and subsequently upset me more than it might otherwise have.
I I think I expected to like this more. I will read more by this author though for sure. Feb 02, Anne rated it really liked it. If you are interested in Scottish history, this book is for you.
This is the story of Lady Macbeth and is based on real history and not Shakespeare's play. This historical fiction novel was an amazing book to read and it was clear through historical detail, it had been well researched.
I would highly recommend this book and I loved the ornate cover. Oct 06, Donna rated it liked it.
Enjoyed reading about the much maligned Lady MacBeth. A brave and courageous woman who endured personal tragedies to fight for her country and family.
Despite being a work of fiction, there is evidence of much historical research and the fifteen year reign of King Macbeth and his queen was a successful one.
Shakespeare has a lot to answer. Due donne, due regine entrambe forti e con un passato triste alle spalle. Ho amato ogni singola parte di questo libro e i suoi protagonisti che, sono sicura, mi mancheranno!!
Prossima lettura? Macbeth di Shakespeare. It took me a while to get in to the flow of this book, but when the narrative got going I was totally hooked.
Even cried at the end as it was very emotional. It was very graphic in some places though! Rich in historical detail and vivid imagery, Blood Queen is the story of two strong women one of whom is Lady Macbeth battling for the Scottish throne in the eleventh century.
This was one of those historical novels that was really easy to read and kept me entertained throughout. Amazing story. Definitely a new favourite author!

My first literary accolade was a creative writing prize at primary school and from that point on I wanted to be a novelist. I was always reading as a child and often made up stories for my brother and sister on long car journeys.
I was also a huge Enid Blyton fan and by ten I was writing my own doubtless terrible boarding school novels.
Perhaps inevitably, I took my degree in English literature My first literary accolade was a creative writing prize at primary school and from that point on I wanted to be a novelist.
Perhaps inevitably, I took my degree in English literature and it was at Cambridge, specialising in medieval literature, that I first discovered what has become a true passion for ancient history.
I took a sidestep after university to work in a wonderful textiles factory in Lancashire - a move that led me to my lovely husband, but didn't satisfy my yearning to write.
Married and living in Derbyshire, however, I took up my pen again in the sparse hours available between raising my two stepchildren and two more of my own.
At that hectic time, I primarily wrote shorter fiction and I've had well over stories and serials published in women's magazines.
Now though, with the older two leaving home and the younger two at secondary school, my time has opened up and it's been a joy to fill it with my historical trilogy - The Queens of the Conquest.
I find the Saxons, Vikings and Normans absolutely fascinating. The more I research their world, the more I realise how cruel the term 'dark ages' is, as these people had hugely sophisticated clothing, jewellery, art, poetry, economics and judicial systems.
They were also just people, as we are people and I firmly believe that they must have largely felt much the same as we do.
Amusement, embarrassment, grief, hatred and - perhaps above all - love are not modern inventions and I have loved creating a cast of, hopefully, believable characters to help readers experience this fantastic era for themselves.
I am thrilled it is being published by PanMacmillan and very much hope that readers enjoy the first novel - The Chosen Queen - out in May Other books in the series.
