Publisher Description

The century spanning the wars of the roses and the reigns of the Tudor kings was a volatile time of battle and bloodshed, execution and unexpected illness. Life could be nasty, brutish and short. Some met their end in battle, others were dragged to the block, losing everything for daring to aspire to the throne. Some were lost in mysterious circumstances, like Edward V, the elder of the Princes in the Tower. But the majority of these young men died in their teens, on the brink of manhood. They represent the lost paths of history, the fascinating “what-ifs” of the houses of York and Tudor. They also diverted the route of dynastic inheritance, with all the complicated implications that could bring, passing power into some unlikely hands. This book examines ten such figures in detail, using their lives to build a narrative of this savage century.

Engrossing

I hated when I had to put this book down! I never could keep British royalty straight, but this book went a long way to solving that dilemma. It is a tour de force of historical research! This is not only the story of the birthrights and personalities of these potential kings, but a fascinating in-depth picture of the way they and their families lived — from religion to sports to studies to clothing, to politics, to their wealth and beyond. This book deserves a Grand Prize!
