Summary Crown and Nobility provides a vivid history of the years 1271-1461. The book shows how the differing abilities and personalities of the late medieval English kings powerfully affected their relationship with the nobility. It examines the contrast between the dominant style of Edward I and both the weakness of Edward II and the chivalric reputation of Edward III. It also looks at how the ineptitude of Henry VI provoked the political crisis of the mid-fifteenth century that lead to the downfall of the House of Lancaster.
This book accounts for the fact that much of the political history of late medieval England was played out against a background of war and justly describes the Welsh and Scottish wars, the great victories in France, and the final debacle under Henry VI. It shows how success and setback in war crucially affected the relationship between the king and his nobles.
