    Summary

    " There is an ancient proverb the Germans would convey by their tongues: Blut ist dicker als Wasser. Blood is thicker than water. These words are used to imply family ties are always stronger and more important than friendship ties, no matter how close you are to the friend. In a situation when a friend betrays you, you could always have a shoulder to cry upon in your family circle. If family was supposed to love you no matter the circumstance, why did my very own cousin Stephen of Blois shatter my heart and betray me to usurp the English crown? "

    You may think you know the story of a tale of two cousins who contended for their claims for the English throne. But what very few know is the forbidden love between the cousins. While there had been gossip of their close connection before and after “The Anarchy,” their ambition and revenge doomed their romance to a civil war leaving untold thousands of dead.

    In her very own point of view, Empress Matilda chronicles her relationship with her cousin Stephen of Blois and why they were fatally destined to become enemies for their hunger for the crown.
