Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty The Plantagenets: Revenge


Dan Jones continues his history of the Plantagenet dynasty with a look at Edward II, who ruled England between 1307 and 1327. In a story of murder, intrigue, lust, betrayal and revenge, the historian explores whether there is any truth behind the rumours that Edward II was gay, investigates what turned his queen into a bloodthirsty matriarch now known as the `She-Wolf’, and reveals how the king’s obsessions with his noblemen – especially Piers Gaveston – blurred his judgement throughout his reign.
