Description
"Within the hollow crown that rounds the mortal temples of a king," wrote Shakespeare in The Tragedy of King Richard II. In this historical fiction, Margaret Campbell Barnes—also the author of My Lady of Cleves, King's Fool, and The Tudor Rose—gives us a different picture of Richard. Unlike his father the Black Prince, or his namesake Richard the Lionheart, Richard II never wanted to be king. When the mantle of royalty is thrust upon him at age 11, England is racked by unrest and class warfare, and this young leader must find a way to triumph in a conflict more destructive than a foreign enemy. Richard's love for his wife, Anne of Bohemia, gives him the strength to outwit the schemes of his enemies and govern as he sees fit, providing England with years of prosperity under his reign, but her death precipitates a downward spiral and the collapse of his rule.
