White King: The Tragedy of Charles I by Leanda de Lisle

Posterity has variously labelled Charles I traitor, dictator and martyr but Leanda de Lisle paints a more balanced portrait. Using a wealth of material, including letters between the king and his highly influential queen, Henrietta Maria, she gives us not only a fine biography but also a better understanding of the turbulent times during which he ruled.

Signed copies available from 24th January
