9780230772458: King John: England, Magna Carta and the Making of a Tyrant

No English king has suffered a worse press than King John: but how to disentangle legend and reality?

The youngest of the five sons of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, the empire builders of the Angevin dynasty, John had small hope of securing any significant inheritance. Then, in 1199, on the death of his older brother Richard, John took possession of the vast Angevin lands in England and on the continent. But by his death in 1216, he had lost almost all that he inherited, and had come perilously close to losing his English kingdom, too.

Drawing on thousands of contemporary sources, Stephen Church tells John's story - from boyhood and the succession crises of his early adulthood, to accession, rebellion and civil war. In doing so, he reveals exactly why John's reign went so disastrously wrong and how John's failure led to the great cornerstone of Britain's constitution: Magna Carta. Vivid and authoritative, King John: England, Magna Carta and the Making of a Tyrant is history at its visceral best.

Recensione:

Church's scholarly account restores complexity to the myth of John as a cruel, unstable ogre. (Nicholas Shakespeare Sunday Telegraph)

Church provides readers with a lively, nuanced and balanced account of the king, his family, upbringing and reign [...] Overall, this is a hugely enjoyable and beautifully researched biography. (Louise Wilkinson BBC History Magazine)

Jaunty, authoritative ... [a] fine, timely study of English history's greatest pantomime villain. (Dan Jones Sunday Times)

Scholarly and readable ... the John that emerges is still a tyrant, but a more complex figure in a complex time. ( Daily Telegraph)

All doubts removed: John was no good ... a fair and rounded picture of the king and his reign (Allan Massie Spectator)
