Edward IV (Penguin Monarchs) : The Summer King, Paperback / softback Book

Edward IV (Penguin Monarchs) : The Summer King Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Monarchs series


'Edward was a man of considerable charm, who perhaps relied too much upon that charm to keep tensions within his entourage at bay' In 1461 Edward earl of March, a handsome, charismatic eighteen-year old, usurped the English throne during the first and most fierce of the Wars of the Roses.

The years that followed witnessed a period that has been described as a golden age.

Yet, argues A. J. Pollard, Edward was a man of limited vision, who squandered his talents and failed to secure his own dynasty.
