Condemned by King Stephen. Loved by King Henry. Honoured by King Richard. Betrayed by King John. For William Marshall, the greatest knight of the realm, serving royalty is an unpredictable business.
Having survived the threat of beheading from Stephen as a child, Marshall rises from nothing to a place in court serving King Henry II. Accused of acting on his love for the beautiful Queen Margaret, William is saved by his trust and loyalty to the King. But the battle for the throne is relentless, and when Henry's own son John rises against him, William must decide if he can remain loyal to the crown . . .
A Pride of Kings, the first in the Plantagenet series, is an epic chronicle of love, heroism, loyalty, and betrayal in one of the most fascinating periods of English history.
