Author Marc Morris talks about his new book
King John: Tyranny, Treachery and the Magna Carta at Brendan Books, Bath Place, Taunton TA1 4ER, Friday 8 May 7.00pm
King John is familiar to everyone as the villain from the tales of Robin Hood – greedy, cowardly, despicable and cruel. But who was the man behind the legend? Was he truly a monster, or a capable ruler cursed by ill luck? In this book, bestselling historian Marc Morris draws on contemporary chronicles and the king’s own letters to bring the real John vividly to life.
Authoritative and dramatic, Marc Morris’s King John offers a compelling portrait of an extraordinary king, whose reign marked a momentous turning point in the history of Britain and Europe.
