The Plantagenet dynasty ruled in England from the accession of Henry II in 1154 to the death of Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth. It included great kings, notably Richard the Lionheart and Henry V, the bad king John, and kings of disputed reputation such as Richard III. Reign by reign, Desmond Seward offers the general reader an authoritative yet accessible overview of the Plantagenet kings and their crucial role in English history.
