The son of King John, Henry III came to the throne - and a kingdom at war with itself - aged nine, and ruled for 56 years until his death in 1272: yet still he is the forgotten king. Matthew Lewis examines Henry's long, complicated and neglected reign, looking in particular at the legacy of Magna Carta; the political landscape of the Angevin Empire and England; and the role of the dominant figures among the barons - Sir William Marshal and Simon de Montfort.
