The Black Prince

By Michael Jones

Head of Zeus, £30, 400 pages, hardback

In the age of knights and castles, one man shone brighter than even the most polished suit of armour. Edward of Woodstock – or the Black Prince as he is better known – came to define the meaning of chivalry through his flamboyant aesthetic and victories on the battlefield. Michael Jones’s new book delves fully into the world of the 14th-century monarch, full of conflict and larger-than-life characters, with Edward at its centre. The Black Prince is sure to enlighten and entertain thanks to the author’s use of new archival research and his pacy, atmospheric writing style.
