Description

The first Plantagenet king inherited a blood-soaked kingdom from the Normans and transformed it into an empire that stretched at its peak from Scotland to Jerusalem. In this epic history, Dan Jones vividly resurrects this fierce and seductive royal dynasty and its mythic world. We meet the captivating Eleanor of Aquitaine, twice queen and the most famous woman in Christendom; her son, Richard the Lionheart, who fought Saladin in the Third Crusade; and King John, a tyrant who was forced to sign Magna Carta, which formed the basis of our own Bill of Rights. This is the era of chivalry, Robin Hood, and the Knights Templar, the era of the Black Death, the Black Prince, the founding of Parliament, and the Hundred Years' War.

      • content: "Dan Jones' The Plantagenets is outstanding. Majestic in its sweep, compelling in its storytelling, this is narrative history at its best. A thrilling dynastic history of royal intrigues, violent skullduggery, and brutal warfare across two centuries of British history."

        February 18, 2013
        Although less famous than their Tudor cousins, the “unnaturally cruel” and powerful Plantagenets were the longest-reigning English royal dynasty, ruling for more than two centuries, from Henry II’s ascendance in 1154 after a violent civil war to Richard II’s deposition at the hands of his cousin Henry Bolingbroke in 1399. The great-grandson of William the Conqueror, Henry II—cunning, dynamic, and “a great legalist”—ruled over England and great swaths of France, but was labeled a “pariah” for his involvement in Archbishop Thomas Becket’s murder and was betrayed by his redoubtable wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and their sons. One of the dynasty’s worst kings was Henry II’s youngest son, John—“weak, indecisive, and mean-spirited”—who killed his nephew, a hapless prisoner, with his own hands in a drunken rage, lost Normandy to France, and was forced to guarantee his barons’ rights through the Magna Carta. By contrast, John’s great-great-grandson, Edward III, considered the greatest Plantagenet, was a new Arthur who “bonded England’s aristocracy together in the common purpose of war,” revived the knight’s code of chivalry, and ushered in English as the accepted language. Blood-soaked medieval England springs to vivid life in Jones’s (Summer of Blood) highly readable, authoritative, and assertive history—already a #1 bestseller in the U.K. 6 maps. Agent: Georgina Capel, Capel & Land (U.K.).
