The Theory and Practice of Revolt in Medieval England
Medieval Englishmen were treacherous, rebellious and killed their kings, as their French contemporaries repeatedly noted. In the 13th through 15th centuries, ten kings faced serious rebellion, in which eight were captured, deposed, and/or murdered. One other king escaped open revolt but encountered vigorous resistance. In this book, Professor Valente argues that the crises of the 13th and 14th centuries were crucibles for change; and their examination helps us to understand medieval political culture in general and key developments in later medieval England in particular.
