Darren Baker’s biography traces the life of Simon de Montfort (c.1208–1265) and offers a fresh interpretation of his character, his feud with Henry III and his legacy. While not ignoring de Montfort’s faults, Baker presents him as a man of charisma, determination and fearlessness; but while history has often credited him with founding Parliament, this study sees his achievement as the recognition and cultivation of an awakening of national identity and political awareness in 13th-century England.
