Book news: Queen Christina in English

At an international biography seminar I attended today I picked up a piece of news which might be of interest to some of the readers of this blog, namely that Marie-Louise Rodén is currently working on an English version of her excellent biography of Queen Christina, originally published in Sweden in 2008.
Many books have already been written on Queen Christina, but Professor Rodén is the acknowledged authority on the subject and her book is likely to remain the standard work for a long time. Unlike other biographers Rodén does not end her story with the Queen’s abdication in 1654, but, based on extensive research, follows her until her death in 1689. Thus she shows what role Queen Christina played in European politics after her abdication and also reveals that she did in fact find the great love of her life.
