Charles IV is now King of France, but as things settle within his own country turmoil brews across the sea. His sister Isabella is married to the weak and impulsive English king, Edward II. As political infighting and military defeat plague Edward, Isabella deserts her husband and flees to France with her lover Roger Mortimer, a rebellious English baron, in the hope of raising an army. But it is a brave man that believes he can bed the so-called 'She-Wolf of France' and survive the curse of the accursed kings.
