Edward I

Front Cover
Yale University Press, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 618 pages
0 Reviews
Edward I -- one of the outstanding monarchs of the English Middle Ages -- pioneered legal and parliamentary change in England, conquered Wales, and came close to conquering Scotland. A major player in European diplomacy and war, he acted as peacemaker during the 1280s but became involved in a bitter war with Philip IV a decade later. This book is the definitive account of a remarkable king and his long and significant reign. Widely praised when it was first published in 1988, it is now reissued with a new introduction and updated bibliographic guide."A masterly achievement...a work of enduring value and one certain to remain the standard life for many years". -- Times Literary Supplement"A fine book: learned, judicious, carefully thought out and skillfully presented. It is as near comprehensive as any single volume could be". -- History Today"To have died more revered than any other English monarch was an outstanding achievement; and it is worthily commemorated by this outstanding addition to the ...corpus of royal biographies". -- Times Education Supplement
