The Rebel Queen is an original story of Queen Christina, who at the age of 6, succeeded her father King Gustav of Sweden.  She was raised and educated as a royal male would have been, was coronated and began ruling as the King at the age of 18.  She is remembered as one of the most educated women of the 1600s.  She was intelligent, unorthodox and a tomboy.  She was known to have relationships with both women and men, and caused a scandal when she decided not to marry.  At times, Christina’s appearance was alarming as well as her unguarded freedom of conversation.  She ultimately broke free, abdicated, left her country and changed her religion.  Considered a traitor by most, she was one of the first women to successfully defy her destiny and embark on an adventurous quest in search of happiness.

This series has huge international appeal.  It has the feel of The Tudors and Game of Thrones.  The romance of Outlanders and raw violence of Vikings.
