BBC History Collector’s Edition: Medieval Kings & Queens£9.99
Inside this special collector’s edition we get beneath the skin of some fascinating rulers of medieval Britain. We examine the caring side of Henry V, ask whether the Black Prince was a noble hero or a rampaging villain and we aim to find the truth about Richard III, ‘Bad’ King John and the crusading Richard the Lionheart.
We also explore the stories of royal women unafraid to fight for their thrones and families; including Isabella the rebellious queen of Edward II, Eleanor of Aquitaine who set her sons against her husband and Matilda, whose claim to the crown caused the bloody ‘Anarchy’.
Plus much more!
