Queen of the Desert

Georgina Howell

 

 


Archaeologist, spy, Arabist, linguist, author, poet, photographer, mountaineer and nation builder, Gertrude Bell was born in 1868 into a world of privilege and plenty. But she turned her back on all that for her passion for the Arab peoples, becoming the architect of the independent kingdom of Iraq and seeing its first king Faisal safely onto the throne in 1921.

Queen of the Desert is her story, vividly told, impeccably researched and drawing on Gertrude's ow writings, both published and unpublished. It is a compelling portrait of a woman who transcended the restrictions of her class and age and, in so doing, created a remarkable and enduring legacy.
