Ebook description:

This sensible new e book explores the lives of eight generations of the best kings and queens that this nation has ever seen, and the worst. The Plantagenets – their story is the story of Britain. A wealthy, sprawling solid of characters, the Plantagenets have been each gifted and cursed by an inherited trait that made some sensible rulers and statesmen, and others cowards, bullies and tyrants. They dominated over wars of conquest and wars of defence. They fought holy Crusades and bitter feuds with Rome. At times their topics loved prosperity, safety, nationwide glory and huge wealth; at others they suffered plagues, invasions, famines and ignominious defeat by the hands of their enemies. The Plantagenets have been by turns stunning and merciless, even handed and insanely paranoid, sensible and a tragically flawed household. The Plantagenets is split into three components, every telling a gripping story of the three essential eras of Plantagenet rule. Together they mix as a historic epic of the type that has not been written of British historical past for practically a century. Parts I, II and III, The Angevins (c.1 150 – 1272), The Edwards (1272 – 1360) and The English (1360 – 1399) have a look at fascinating characters reminiscent of Count Goeffrey V of Anjou, the primary Plantagenet, Richard the Lionheart and his much less well-known older brother Henry, Edward the Black Prince and the gorgeous and influential princess Joan of Kent. In a e book of dazzling scope and ambition, Dan Jones paints a psychological household portrait of the royal home of Plantagenet, making a mesmerising new historical past of Britain earlier than the Tudors. This is really a definitive e book constructing on the compelling fashion of his first e book, Summer of Blood, bringing medieval Britain into vivid focus for the trendy reader, and accessible to readers from age 9 to 90. present more
