Summary

The Plantagenets reigned over England longer than any other family - from Henry II to Richard III. Four kings were murdered, two came close to being deposed, and the last - and most notorious, Richard III - was killed in a battle by rebels. Shakespeare wrote plays about six of them, further entrenching them in the national myth. Based on major contemporary sources and recent research, acclaimed historian Desmond Seward provides the first accessible overview of the whole extraordinary dynasty, in one volume.

Too fast

Fascinating book let down by being read so quickly. Also some of the dates were wrong.

Could have been fantastic

I admire most the author and reader's ability to make dull a truly remarkable story.
