“There are few historians working today who know so much and write so well. Taken together, the two volumes of Henry III… set a gold standard for medieval royal biography.” —Dan Jones, Times (UK) “This volume completes a truly magisterial account of the longest reign of the Middle Ages. It is a work of which the author should feel deservedly proud.” —David Robinson, Country Life
