The Plantagenets reigned over England longer than any other family - from Henry II, to Richard III.

In Britannia Graham Stewart traces two thousand years of an island's story - from Roman province to twenty-first century European nation-state - through one hundred historic documents.

Das vorliegende Buch verdeutlicht die Rolle dieses Herrschergeschlechts in England selbst sowie im Beziehungsgeflecht der übrigen Reiche Europas. Dargestellt wird die politische Ereignisgeschichte von Heinrich... more...
