Vol I The Prisoner of Foix
Aquitaine, an English possession, is in crisis. It is under threat from neighbouring nations and internal dissension.
The Black Prince, King Edward III’s eldest son has been given the task of taking command in Aquitaine.
Suddenly there is an opportunity. Ximene Trencavel is the heiress to the lands of Occitan, to the east of Aquitaine: lands controlled by the Franks. Ximene wants independence, both for herself and for Occitan.
Volume II The Virago
The Prince invades Occitan, to show his support for Ximene but it becomes an invasion which creates more problems than it solves.
The Prince has fallen hopelessly in love with Joan of Kent and Joan is now determined to marry him and become the next Queen of England.Show More Show Extract
