    One thought on “The Death of Kings: Royal Deaths in Medieval England”

    1. To be honest, I am only about halfway through this book and may not finish it The emphasis is on the political and religious implications of the deaths of the kings featured and I was looking for a medical slant to this end I have ordered a copy of The Death of Kings A Medical History of the Kings and Queens of England, by Clifford Brewer What I like about Evans book is that he gives a very neat and concise summary at the end of each chapter in case you missed something when your mind wandered [...]

    2. A bit dry but an interesting aspect of medieval British history The final chapter on the deaths of queens was pretty good, but then the book just ends without any real wrap up It s one to get from the library if you have any interest in the subject I skimmed most of it.

    3. I had a hard time finishing this one So repetitive and the only thing I took away from it is that Henry I natural daughter tried to kill him That would be interesting to read about.
