I dont read many biographies of historical figures but this one was intriguing due to its subject being one of the lesser known rulers of england henry iii if youre looking for a book about a king who leads a scandalous life with mistresses and illegitimate children or a great warrior king youll find yourself disappointed. The people of england could be thankful that henry iii was no richard i or john for neither of them had done the realm any good richard had spent nearly all of his ten years on the throne abroad some of it as a captive following his crusade. Ultimately despite the occasional flaws this is an impressive study and a radically new way of looking at a much maligned king of england yet while left more appreciative of henrys abilities i was unconvinced that he lived up to the title of the great king england never knew it had he certainly left one undeniably great legacy
