About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1918, this book analyses the baronial opposition to Edward II, whose reign is considered to have been one of the most disastrous for England. James Conway Davies examines the features of the administrative system against which the barons eventually rebelled, and details the various attacks by the barons against the royal position. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Plantagenet history.
