Summary
"John Julius Norwich tells the story of what really happened in the century and a half between 1337 and 1485 by examining the history plays, from the recently authenticated Edward III through to Richard III." "He establishes just how real Shakespeare's characters and events are and what liberties he took with the facts to improve the pace of the plays and to entertain his audience. Events include the Wars of the Roses, the death of the Princes in the Tower and the Battle of Bosworth."--BOOK JACKET
