Summary
William Marshal blazes into history on the strength of his sword and the depth of his honor. Marshal's integrity sets him apart in the turbulent court of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, bringing fame and the promise of a wealthy heiress as well as enemies eager to plot his downfall. This is a spellbinding tale about a forgotten hero, an ancestor of George Washington, an architect of the Magna Carta, and a legend of chivalry, the greatest knight of the Middle Ages
Summary
Raised from obscurity for his role in saving the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine, William Marshal becomes a royal favorite before his influence over prince Henry makes him the subject of envy and scandal, a downfall for which he is sent on a pilgrimage to the holy land and eventually married to Isabelle de Clare. 10,000 first printing
