Edward the Confessor released

Tuesday, 11 August 2020

The new book in the English Monarchs series, "Edward the Confessor" by Tom Licence, has been published in Britain by Yale and should be in book shops today. Pre-ordered copies were posted yesterday and should be arriving in the mail soon. This is the thirty-third book in the series, and the twenty-first issued by Yale. This new book comes only three months after the previous new book "Henry III". The cover bears the endorsement of David Bates, the author of the 2016 series book "William the Conqueror”. It has been fifty years since the previous English Monarchs series Edward the Confessor biography (by Frank Barlow) and this new release brings to the series the latest scholarship on this king. See the Edward the Confessor page on this site for purchasing options - but the best idea is to support your local bookshop.
