This three volume book by Emily Isaacson is a modern prophecy of an event that occurred long ago...
And so it was told: The Legend of the Fleurs de Lys
Commemorating the marriage of the Duke of Bedford to Anne of Burgundy, the manuscript was given as a Christmas gift to their nephew, nine-year-old Henry VI in 1430.

The Fleur-de-lis - Volume I
The Laurel Wreath
by Emily Isaacson
From the prophecy in ironwork on the Peace Tower door of the fleur-de-lis, the thistle and the rose...to the unfading beauty of the gilt glass ceiling, and the icons of two angels, Justice and Liberty.
Emily writes Prince William to recapture the spirit of her country and her people. When she sends him her ecumenical document in poetry asking to be removed from the Commonwealth, it gathers dust, largely forgotten. Now, at last, it has come into the limelight. The treasured complete work, in three volumes, reveals this gem of a poet. The signatory emblem of the fleur-de-lis is a plumb-line of the inhabited world, revealing the literary landscape. With both skill and myth, Emily Isaacson navigates the waters of truce.

The Fleur-de-lis - Volume III
The Black Swan, Libertine
by Emily Isaacson
In this third volume of The Fleur-de-lis, the nature of the monarch's gift of spiritual touch is referenced and expanded into a gift of healing, endemic in its proportions. When two characters, Edward and Waverley, from an 1800s graveyard come to life, the poetry begins. The timeless Queen, King, Jack, and Ace vie for the sake of duty, politics, and passion. Justice and Liberty draw their revelation swords in defense of an eternal dominion. The perspective of Eternity from an aging world of old meteor stones makes this an enduring classic of postmodern literature that will both inspire and delight readers of all ages. Emily Isaacson once again rivets her audience with the essence of immortality and undying youth.
