THE GIRL KING is the story of one of the most iconic and most brilliant Queens in history. Queen Kristina of Sweden, raised as a prince at her father’s request, is thrust into a world of conflict. Faced with the austere, fiercely conservative Lutheran values of the times, she begins her reign in confrontation – opting for education for all her subjects, putting an end to the Thirty Years War and modernizing Sweden.
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, torn between reason and passion; between her female body and being raised as a prince. 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 enigmatic young Kristina who defied convention, challenged tradition and changed the course of history, preceding this momentous and influential decision.
