For 60 years, England was dominated by Henry II and his sons Richard the Lionheart and John. Combining biography and political history, this book begins with the dynasty’s turbulent origins in the death of Henry I’s heir William in the White Ship disaster and the ensuing war between Stephen and Matilda. If then follows Henry II’s conflict with Thomas à Beckett, the loss of Normandy, Richard’s crusades, and John’s struggle with the barons that led to Magna Carta.
