Based on fact, this is the story of William Marshal, the greatest knight of the Middle Ages. Unsurpassed in the tourneys, he adeptly manoeuvres his way through the colourful, dangerous world of Angevin politics to become one of the most powerful magnates of the realm and eventually regent of England. From minor beginnings and a narrow escape from death in childhood, William Marshal steadily rises through the ranks to become tutor in arms to the son of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. As champion on the tourney field and a royal favorite, William is in danger of petty jealousies at court. Dogged by scandal, banished from court, his services are nevertheless sought throughout Europe and when William's honour is vindicated, he returns to court to win greater acclaim and power than before. A crusader and the only knight ever to unhorse the legendary Richard Coeur de Lion, William's courage and steadfastness are rewarded by the hand in marriage of Anglo-Irish heiress Isobel de Clare, 19 years old, the grandaughter of kings and his equal in every way.

 WOW!

I never knew, in all the books I have read, that such a person existed. William Marshall certainly had a full and active life! It seems strange that no-one has made a film of this mans life, it has everything. To be the companion/champion of Royalty and manage to stay alive in such terbulent times. Congratulations Elizabeth for a great read!!!

 A must read!

I am not one for Historical books really, I chose this one as part of a deal. But am so glad that I did as it was a truly brilliant book.

I found the writing style easy to read and was one that I was able to get completely absorbed in, the characters were great too and I felt a great deal of compassion for William in this book.

I would thorougly recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to get into the Historical side of reading. I am now looking for more books by Elizabeth Chadwick to read.
