Paris, October 1207. There is nothing that Princess Alais of France wants more than to settle down with her lover, William of Caen, and to reveal to his ward, Francis, that she is his mother. But intrigue is afoot in the palace: two monks have arrived from Rome on a mission to compel her brother Philippe, the King, to help them battle the Cathars, a dangerous breakaway Christian sect in the south. Tensions mount when the St John Cup, a relic much prized by the Cathars, is stolen, and then young Francis goes missing. Frantic, Alais will risk life and limb to find the boy. Donning a disguise, the royal princess must outwit cunning enemies and make her way into unfamiliar territory to save her son, and maybe prevent her beloved France from a bloody holy war. From the opulent halls of Paris to austere monasteries in the south of France, The Rebel Princess combines history and suspense in an unforgettable tale involving one of the most enigmatic and intriguing female figures in medieval history.
