Until the mass hysteria of the seventeenth century, accusations of witchcraft in England were rare; however, four unique cases arose in the fifteenth century. Specificallly, the cases of Joan of Navarre, Eleanor Cobham, Jacquetta of Luxembourg, and Elizabeth Woodville. This book explores the lives and cases of these so-called witches in the context of their time and how, at the end of the day, the accusations against these women were pushed almost purely for political gain. This unique look into a time when the lines between science and magic were blurred gives startling insights into how these four cases would help set the precedent for the hysteria to come for England's infamous witch trials.
