Edward VI (Penguin Monarchs): The Last Boy King

Hardback, 04/12/2014, £10.99
Edward VI, the only son of Henry VIII, became king at the age of nine and died wholly unexpectedly at the age of fifteen. This book gives full play to the murky, sinister nature of Edward's reign, and also an account of a boy learning to rule, learning to enjoy his growing power and to come out of the shadows of the great aristocrats around him.

Henry II (Penguin Monarchs): A Prince Among Princes

Hardback, 30/04/2015, £10.99
One of the most dynamic, restless and clever men ever to rule England, Henry II (1154-89) was brought down both by his relationship with his archbishop Thomas Becket and his arguments with his sons, most importantly the future Richard I and King John. This account shows why Henry II left such a compelling impression on his contemporaries.

George VI (Penguin Monarchs): The Dutiful King

Hardback, 04/12/2014, £10.99
If Ethelred was notoriously 'Unready' and Alfred 'Great', King George VI should bear the title of 'George the Dutiful'. He was not born to be king, but he made an admirable one, and was the figurehead of the nation at the time of its greatest trial, the Second World War. This book is about this reluctant public figure, and the private man.
