3.0 out of 5 stars Cute October 19, 2010
I was a big fan of the Dear American Diaries and the Royal Diaries when I was younger. This adaptation includes three short episodes: Cleopatra, Elizabeth I, and Isabelle of Castille. The acting really isn't bad, and neither are the story lines. The costumes and settings are quite believable, but the music score leaves something to be desired. I did wish accents were present in the Cleopatra episode. These are brief stories about girls who could not just be carefree teenagers, but had to face serious situations while still quite young. Perhaps these films would be useful for educational purposes--a theatrical glimpse of real historical figures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted look at historical figures. November 29, 2012
By Mena P.
Verified Purchase
As a little girl, and a budding history buff to boot, I loved these books. They gave me my first look at people they hadn't yet even bothered to teach a ten year old. As an adult, I've now tried to gather as many as I can (at least about the historical figures I'm interested in) and in my quest I came across this. And while certainly cute, it's also a neat way for youngsters to learn about some of the most interesting women of the past.

Elizabeth: Red Rose Of The House Of Tudor is about Elizabeth I. It takes place during the later years of Henry's marriage to Catherine Parr, so all three of Henry's children are present. You get to see both Elizabeth's struggle for Henry's approval, as well as her rivalry with Mary, who while given a little moment of remorse, is mostly cast in a negative light. Something we don't get to see a lot of in tv and film is Elizabeth as a child, so this is a neat perspective to see. Also included, much to my history loving glee, is the scene where Catherine's arrest warrant is brought forward and Henry, despite his age, still lets out that fearsome Tudor roar. Anyone who knows their history knows that this actually happened.

Isabel: Jewel Of Castila focuses on Isabella de Castilla, the woman famous for ruling in her own right, creating the Spanish Inquisition, supporting Christopher Columbus, and giving birth to some very famous daughters. Here she is a curious young girl who, while on a little adventure away from the prying eyes of her brother, crosses paths with the man who would become her future husband, Ferdinand of Aragon. This tale, while dealing with some serious internal sturggles, is an interesting and sometimes cute look at Isabella's life. However, if this prompts you to want to buy the book, be warned.

My daughter loves these books so it was nice to see they had actually put some of them to film. She watched it again and again. It's a good image for young girls to learn from.
