    Epub The Hollow Crown ePUB ß The Hollow Epub / Ý stroyki.pro hollow book, crown download, The Hollow book, The Hollow Crown KindleAs with his earlier volume The Plantagenets The Warrior Kings and ueens Who Made England Jones has developed narrative nonfiction covering a complicated era of history and made it a pleasure to read He clearly establishes that the Wars of the Roses were about so much than who had the strongest royal bloodWhen Henry Bolingbroke determined to steal his cousin's crown in 1399 he could have had no inkling of the future that he was setting into motion By showing that the throne of England was up for grabs to whoever was strong enough to take it he put the Plantagenet dynasty on a collision course that would decimate the family leaving the unexpected Tudors in controlThat was uite a rise for the grandson of Owen Tudor who due to his Welsh blood had not even been allowed to own land and w

    Epub The Hollow Crown ePUB ß The Hollow Epub / Ý stroyki.pro hollow book, crown download, The Hollow book, The Hollow Crown KindleI really loved this book Going into it I had strong opinions about the warring families having studied the Tudors for 16 years and Shakespeare’s histories in college—but also because my ancestors had been strong supporters of the Lancastrian claim So imagine my surprise when I read at the end of chapter 11 that “Sir James Luttrell of Devonshire” was later credited with the capture of Richard Duke of York For all I knew about my family’s history I never knew THAT incredible information I don’t know how Sir James would have felt about his descendant cheering him on 550 years later but it’s a rare thing to find a book that makes you feel like you are in the midst of the actionI was fortunate to w

My main problem is that for me the author's biases show a bit too much not only against Richard III who he asserts as fact in the Introduction killed his brother Edward's sons even a most historians agree would have been tolerable but also in favor of other characters such as Richard's father Richard Duke of York who Jones repeatedly asserts had no intention of usurping his cousin Henry VI's crown until presumably he actually tried to do it and Edward I

    Epub The Hollow Crown ePUB ß The Hollow Epub / Ý stroyki.pro hollow book, crown download, The Hollow book, The Hollow Crown KindleThe politics of blood has always amused me The idea that someone is automatically deserving of something – a crown for instance – because of who their father or mother was is probably the most absurd unjust thing ever thought up So we have Dan Jones’ book “The War of the Roses” in which many characters run about claiming that this person has of a right to wear the crown than that person because they’re supposedly a direct descendant of a former king or ueen The idea of “royal blood” rightful claimants to the throne and bastard children of a king being unable to rule because they weren’t conceived in wedlock is all pretty absurd But was it borne out of a desire for order by a civilization not developed enough to function fully as a democracy or is thinking that a person’s superiority was directly related to who their relations were simply a result of primeval thinking?It doesn’t feel too far removed from to
