Available in Stock
In 1487, the Yorkist claimant to the throne, Lambert Simnel, was crowned king in Dublin. To the Tudors he was an impostor, and history has generally agreed with their interpretation. However, many aspects of the Lambert Simnel story are contradictory. In this study, Ashdown-Hill presents a re-examination of the pretender and his claim by meticulously tracking the life stories, including alternative versions, of the four – or possibly five – boys who may have been the Dublin king.
