The Plantagenet Socialite

$ 34.95

Jan-Marie Knights documents the social calendar of Plantagenent high society in a series of bite-sized chunks. The book covers weddings, feasts, funerals and more - allowing the reader to immerse themselves in the glamour, affluence and human drama of a gilded world.

Murders, mayhem and bloody struggles, warring families and deeds of chivalry and love are disclosed in tales from more than three hundred years of English history.

Follow the Peasants Revolt, Glorious Agincourt, War of the Roses and the murder of the Princes in the Tower, and let this book transport you back in time to give a Socialite’s view of the monarchs and their courts, their loves, their scandals, their tragedies and passions of those distant characters we call ‘the Plantagenets’.

Jan-Marie Knights is an ex-editor and journalist who has worked on many newspapers and magazines and is a keen researcher of local and Tudor history. She lives in the area known as the 'Dukeries' with her Tonkinese cat called Ashi.
