The Poisoned Crown by Maurice Druon

King Louis X has murdered his wife and exiled his mistress to clear the way for his new beloved bride and mother of his heirs to be, Clemence of Hungary. When war against Flanders and factions within France threaten to rip her apart, France hinds herself with a weak king ruled by his uncle and bad councilors. But the crown of France is cursed. Who can escape?

I loved the continuation of this family saga. The introduction of new characters keeps the story going and fresh. The family drama is amazing. These books are everything you could ever want.
