At least two of the most interesting touristic spots in Portugal had this Queen personally involved in their construction: The Mosteiro de Batalha (Batalha Monastery – an impressive Gothic building) an the Sintra National Palace (with its “looking like women’s middle age hat “ chimneys).This book is fantastic and is about Pilippa of Lancaster, eldest daughter of John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster, and Blanche of Lancaster, and sister of king Henry IV of England. She became Queen consort of Portugal, getting married to King John I at 28 years old to secure the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance. She was the mother of the 'Illustrious Generation”, the starting point of Portuguese expansion by sea. Filipa was the only English Queen to Portugal as Catarina de Bragança was the only Portuguese Queen of England (she was the subject of a 2008 Stiwell’s book – Catarina de Bragança, A Coragem de uma Infanta Portuguesa que foi Rainha da Inglaterra). It is a pity they haven’t published those books in English and a shame they do not have a Brazilian edition (as far as I know). The author is really a good writer and researcher. I haven’t read the book on Queen Catarina yet, but I’m looking forward to, as well as to read Stilwell’s most recent “ Dona Amélia - A Rainha exilada que deixou o seu coração em Portugal, Queen Consorto of D. Carlos of Portugal. I guess I will have to order them online from a bookshop in Portugal.
Hi, where can I find this book, Filipa de Lencastre, A Rainha que mudou Portugal? Thank you.

It's an interesting book. I've read half of it. The most interesting part to me is the relationship between Victoria&Albert and the portuguese reigning couple, D. Maria and D. Fernando, and their kids. I thought it was a good idea to read this book first, as a kind of an introduction to another one that has the letters exchanged between the two Queens.
