    1 thought on “Henry III: A Simple and God-Fearing King

    1. I ve seen the Penguin Monarchs series on the shelves in bookshops a lot in recent months, and debated with myself as to whether they would be worth the investment, both in time and money I thought the best way to judge this would be to read one about a monarch I knew a decent amount about already Though in recent years my degree has taken priority and as a result my reading about medieval history has been put to one side, there was a time when I read anything about Henry III I could get my hands [...]

    2. This is a slim, bare bones biography of Henry III, but author Stephen Church wastes no time getting into analysis of his subject s actions and the meaning behind them I found Church s insights intriguing and persuasive For anyone interested in starting to learn about medieval politics and rulers, the Penguin Monarchs series is an excellent place to start.
