Richard and John by Frank McLynn

Book Description

Legend and lore surround the history of kings Richard and John, from the ballads of Robin Hood and the novels of Sir Walter Scott to Hollywood movies. Frank McLynn has returned to the original sources to discover what Richard and John, the warring sons of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, were really like, and how their history measures up to the old legends. With narrative panache and anecdotal detail (The Independent), McLynn explores the truth behind the early folklore tradition, confirming that Richard was everything youd hoped for, and his brother John was the toad youd always suspected. This is history at its best-a story well-told, thoroughly researched, unexpectedly revealing, and a rattling good read (Spectator).

Books By Author Frank McLynn

Genghis Khan by Frank McLynn Genghis Khan, Paperback (September 2016)

From an acclaimed historian, a new and definitive biography of the great conqueror Genghis Khan

Bonnie Prince Charlie by Frank McLynn Bonnie Prince Charlie, Paperback (November 2015)

Shows the man Charles Edward Stuart who became known to legend as Bonnie Prince Charlie and whose unsuccessful challenge to the Hanoverian throne was followed by the crushing defeat at Culloden in 1746. The author argues that failure was far from inevitable and history in 1745 came close to taking quite a different turn.

Crime and Punishment in Eighteenth Century England by Frank McLynn Crime and Punishment in Eighteenth Century England, Paperback (November 2014)

McLynn provides the first comprehensive view of crime and its consequences in the eighteenth century: why was England notorious for violence? Why did the death penalty prove no deterrent? Was it a crude means of redistributing wealth?

Road Not Taken by Frank McLynn Road Not Taken, Paperback (July 2013)

Takes seven occasions when Britain came closest to revolution: the Peasants' Revolt of 1381; the Jack Cade rebellion of 1450; the Pilgrimage of Grace in 1536; the English Civil Wars of the 1640s; the Jacobite Rising of 1745-6; the Chartist Movement of 1838-48; and the General Strike of 1926.
