Description
No English king has suffered a worse press than King John: Bad King John, the Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin Hood, Magna Carta—but how to disentangle myth and truth? John was the youngest of the five sons of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine who, on the death of his brother Richard the Lionheart in 1199, took possession of a vast—and vastly wealthy—inheritance. By his death in 1215 he had squandered it all, and come close to losing his English kingdom, too. Stephen Church vividly recounts exactly how John contrived to lose so much, so quickly, and in doing so, tells the story of Magna Carta, which 800 years later, is still one of the cornerstones of Western democracy.

"Jaunty, authoritative ... [a] fine, timely study of English history's greatest pantomime villain."—Dan Jones

"Restores complexity to the myth of John as a cruel, unstable ogre."—Sunday Telegraph
