The acclaimed Penguin Monarchs series: short, fresh, expert accounts of England's rulers - now in paperback.

'Edward remains one of England's more controversial kings, but he was very much a prince of his time'

Edward I, 'Longshanks', one of the most commanding and knightly of all English kings, styled himself as a second Arthur. A canny politician, he reshaped England's entire legal system, but also ruled with ruthlessness, fighting abroad and brutally crushing the Scots and Welsh at home. Andy King's penetrating short biography asks, was he a reformer, or a tyrant?
