Son of Edward III, brother to the Black Prince, father to Henry IV and sire of all the Tudors, John of Gaunt was always close to the English crown. But was he too rich and too powerful and did he have his eye on his nephew’s throne? Why was he such a focus of hate in the Peasant’s Revolt of 1381?  Bestselling historian Helen Carr tells the story of this extraordinary medieval figure who held the power behind the English throne, passionately upheld chivalric values, and took huge risks to woo the woman he loved.

‘Superb, gripping and fascinating, here is John of Gaunt and a cast of kings, killers and queens brought blazingly, sensitively and swashbucklingly to life’ – Simon Sebag Montefiore
