More very interesting stuff from KW
Richard Fitzalan, earl of Arundel and Surrey, was the eldest son of Edmund Fitzalan, earl of Arundel (1 May 1285-17 November 1326) and Alice (c. 1287-before 1338), sister of John de Warenne, earl of Surrey. As Surrey had no ...

Very interesting post with original thought - as usual from Kathryn Warner
In this post I'm going somewhat outside my usual blog parameters to write about a Spanish woman who was (to link her to the subject of the blog) Edward II's granddaughter-in-law, the second wife of his grandson John of Gaunt,...

Useful and interesting
In the nineteenth century, Agnes Strickland in her Lives of the Queens of England made up a story that Edward II and Isabella of France's eldest child the future Edward III was born at exactly 5.40am on Monday 13 November 131...

Excellent post - very intriguing.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Edward II's life, for me, is the way he became infatuated in the late 1310s with a man he had never shown the slightest interest in before, despite having known him for many years: Hugh ...

What was Stillington's motive?
Although Commines is the principal source for Robert Stillington being the clergyman who informed Richard of the alleged marriage between Edward IV and Lady Eleanor Talbot, the treatment of the bishop after the accession of Henry VII does appear to support ...

Henry I and the Lost Yorkist Princess
Philippa Langley has announced that she is now involved in the search for King Henry I on the site of Reading Abbey. Reading Abbey was of course destroyed during the reign of that much-loved king, Henry VIII. A few ruins remain and the site is partly built ...

Constanza, Duchess of Lancaster
In this excellent blog post  Kathryn Warner refreshes our understanding of Constanza, Duchess of Lancaster, with her usual eye for false myth. However, one particularly interesting fact arising from the post (in that it relates to the House of York) is that...

This is an excellent Blog article!
To celebrate the new year, I’ve thrown caution to the winds and set my imagination free to recount a purely invented scenario. It concerns one of the most baffling incidents of the Richard III story: the plot that resulted in the execution of William, Lord Hastings. First let me run through the...

A very interesting review.
Published as La Louve de France in 1959, English translation 1960. This is the fifth in Maurice Druon's acclaimed Les Rois Maudits/The Accursed Kings series. The four preceding volumes are: Le Roi de fer/The Iron King, La Rei...

The Strange Death of Lancastrian Englnd
When Henry IV had his final succession statute passed through
Parliament he made no provision for the throne beyond his children and
their offspring. Neither the Beauforts, the Yorks, or even the Hollands
got so much as a line. This was quite understanda...

Dear Brian,
Firstly, I hope you don't mind my contacting you via your blog.
My name is Georgina and I work for Endeavour Press - the UK's leading independent digital publisher.
I am looking to contact Marian Palmer as we at Endeavour Press are very interested in republishing some of her work in digital form, as I don't believe some of her titles currently have Kindle editions.
I read on a blog post on The Yorkist Age that you were in contact with Mrs Palmer a few years ago and I am therefore hopeful that you may have an email address that you could provide me with so that I can discuss the matter with her further.
I completely understand if you feel uncomfortable passing personal details on, and in that instance it would be equally helpful if you could forward my email on to Mrs Palmer so that she can reply to me herself if she wishes to discuss the matter in more detail.
My email address for your reference is: georgina@endeavourpress.com
I would be extremely grateful for any means of contact that you can provide me with for Mrs Palmer.
Kind regards,
Georgina

Rosemary Hawley Jarman
It is with great sadness that I record the passing of Rosemary Hawley Jarman, author of, among other works, We Speak No Treason. Few writers, if any, have captured the 'feel' of the fifteenth century so perfectly. Her novel introduced many to the 'cause' of...
