richard kagan clio and the crown – the politics of history in medieval and early modern spain купить по лучшей цене

The crown of England changed hands five times over the course of the fifteenth century, as warring branches of the Plantagenet dynasty fought to the death for the right to rule, tearing their family apart in a brutal blood feud until they were finally cast aside by the Tudors. Some of the great heroes and villains of history were thrown together in these turbulent times, from Henry V, whose victory at Agincourt and prudent rule marked the high point of the medieval monarchy, to Richard III, who murdered his own nephews in a desperate bid to secure his stolen crown. While Richard duke of York, Warwick the Kingmaker, and Edward IV rounded up armies and sent those who betrayed them to the scaffold, Catherine of Valois, Margaret of Anjou, and the beautiful, twice-married, and deeply unpopular Elizabeth Woodville secretly schemed to secure the throne for their progeny. This was the high point in the age of chivalry, when the printing press arrived, the Renaissance began to flourish, and the first modern voyages from Europe to the Americas were undertaken. Yet it was also an age of chaos and brutality. With vivid descriptions of the battles of Towton and Bosworth, this a bold and dramatic narrative history for fans of Game of Thrones and The White Queen.
