THE GIRL KING is the story of one of the most iconic Queens in history. Queen Kristina, at her father’s request raised as a prince, is thrust into a world of conflict. Faced with the austere, fiercely conservative Lutheran values of the time she begins her reign in confrontation – opting for education for all her subjects and an end to the Thirty Years War. Pulled between the Lutheran and Catholic forces, conspiring for her allegiance, she also faces an internal struggle. Falling deeply in love with her lady in waiting, the stunning Ebba Sparre, she is left confused and wanting. As the forces converge, Kristina is pushed towards making one of the greatest and most scandalous decisions in history. This is the story of the young Kristina, preceding this momentous and influential decision.
