    kindle À The Greatest Traitor The Life of Sir Roger Mortimer Ruler of England 1327 1330 Õ Paperback ☆ ian mortimer The Greatest Traitor The Life of Sir Roger Mortimer Ruler of England 1327 1330Another 5 star biography from Ian Mortimer I read 'The Perfect King' published in 2004 recently and have now devoured 'The Greatest Traitor' published in 2003 So I've gone against the chronology of history and the authors workI can't recommend Ian Mortimer's two books highly enough The picture that has come down the centuries of Roger Mortimer as the power hungry traitor is shown here to be a very shallow understanding of the manThe Mortimer was a feudal lord simply caught up in the ruinous reign of Edward II and his 'favourites' firstly Piers Gaveston and then Hugh DespenserRoger Mortimer's testosterone adrenelin fuelled life and career beats any Hollywood Errol Flynn character Merely a baron's son he fought at Bannockburn rose to Lieutenant and defeated the Bruce faction

    kindle À The Greatest Traitor The Life of Sir Roger Mortimer Ruler of England 1327 1330 Õ Paperback ☆ ian mortimer The Greatest Traitor The Life of Sir Roger Mortimer Ruler of England 1327 1330This book gives a pretty good impression of 14th century aristocratic England by following the life story of one extraordinary man The author uses the book as a vehicle for sometimes very daring theses The central thesis that Roger Mortimer did not kill king Edward II as had been historical consensus for centuries is introduced somewhat offhandedly and only substantiated in the last chapter This makes seem much of the last third of the book seem pretty far out on a limb but good evidence for it is given in the final chapterI cannot finish without one uote though which shows the author's twisted understanding of love and view of women though There is no reason to doubt that Roger did love Isabella deeply as shown by his blurted out threat to kill her if she returned t
