The year is 1402. Margrete has achieved what no man has managed before. She has gathered Denmark, Norway and Sweden into a peace-oriented union, which she single-handedly rules through her young, adopted son, Erik. The union is beset by enemies, however, and Margrete is therefore planning a marriage between Erik and an English princess. An alliance with England should secure the union’s status as an emerging European power but a breathtaking conspiracy is underway that can tear Margrete and all she believes in apart.

Margrete Queen of the North is a superbly mounted drama set in a variety of Scandinavian countries at the end of the 14th century and the beginning of the 15th century – David Stratton, The Australian

It’s a big, dark, roiling cauldron of politics and emotion, and satisfying as all that — even if a lot of it is speculation.  – Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
