A secret marriage, a lost memoir, a terrible injustice, and a 150-year-old tale of revenge When Oxford historian Septimus Oates is handed a bundle of documents, including a certificate dated 1759 recording a secret marriage between the Prince of Wales, later King George III, and Hannah Lightfoot, a Quaker's daughter, he discovers the documents reveal the existence of a son, George Rex, the rightful heir to the throne, whose story is told in a long lost memoir. Witness to a brutal killing one June afternoon in 1914, Septimus flees Oxford only to find himself enmeshed in a web of deception, at the heart of which lies a burning desire for revenge by George Rex's descendants. Drawn further into the dark secrets and betrayals of 18th century England, Septimus discovers the horrifying truth which threatens to bring the legacy of George Rex's vengeance to a dreadful conclusion in the summer of 1914. From the quadrangles of Oxford to the mountains of Austria and Bohemia and the streets of Prague, Vienna, and Sarajevo, accompanied by his schoolmaster colleague Peddle and shadowy forces of the fledgling British Secret Intelligence Service, Septimus uncovers plans for an imminent assassination that could bring Europe—and the world—to the brink of war.

Eighteenth-century philosopher David Hume famously declared that "the crusades engrossed the attention of Europe and have ever since engaged the curiosity of mankind." This is the first book-length study of how succeeding generations from the First Crusade in 1099 to the present day have understood, refashioned, molded, and manipulated accounts of these medieval wars of religion to suit changing contemporary circumstances and interests. The crusades have attracted some of the leading historical writers, scholars, and controversialists from John Foxe (of Book of Martyrs fame), to the philosophers G.W. Leibniz, Voltaire, and David Hume, to historians such as William Robertson, Edward Gibbon, and Leopold Ranke. Accessibly written, a history of histories and historians, the book will be of interest to students and researchers of crusading history from upperclass undergraduate to postgraduate level, and to cultural historians focusing on the past and on medievalism.

When the armies of the First Crusade wrested Jerusalem from control of the Fatimids of Egypt in 1099, they believed their victory was an evident sign of God's favor. It was, therefore, incumbent upon them to fulfill what they understood to be God's plan: to re-establish Christian control of Syria and Palestine. This book is devoted to the resulting settlements, the crusader states, that developed around the eastern shores of the Mediterranean and survived until Richard the Lionheart's departure in 1192. Focusing on Jerusalem, Antioch, Tripoli, and Edessa, Malcolm Barber vividly reconstructs the crusaders' arduous process of establishing and protecting their settlements, and the simultaneous struggle of vanquished inhabitants to adapt to life alongside their conquerors. Rich with colorful accounts of major military campaigns, the book goes much deeper, exploring in detail the culture of the crusader states--the complex indigenous inheritance, the architecture, the political, legal, and economic institutions, the ecclesiastical framework through which the crusaders perceived the world, the origins of the Knights Templar and the Hospitallers, and more. With the zest of a scholar pursuing a life-long interest, Barber presents a complete narrative and cultural history of the crusader states while setting a new standard for the term "total history."

Crusading fervour gripped Europe for over 200 years, creating one of the most extraordinary, vivid episodes in world history. Whether the Crusades are regarded as the most romantic of Christian expeditions, or the last of the barbarian invasions, they have fascinated generations ever since, and their legacy of ideas and imagery has resonated through the centuries, inspiring Hollywood movies and great works of literature. Even today, to invoke the Crusades is to stir deep cultural myths, assumptions and prejudices. Yet despite their powerful hold on our imaginations, our knowledge of them remains obscured an distorted by time. Were the Crusaders motivated by spiritual rewards, or by greed? Were the Crusades an experiment in European colonialism, or a manifestation of religious love? How were they organized and founded? With customary flair and originality, Christopher Tyerman picks his way through the many debates to present a clear and lively discussion of the Crusades; bringing together issues of colonialism, cultural exchange, economic exploitation, and the relationship between past and present. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

With the emphasis firmly on Richard's monarchy rather than on his personal life, Gillingham's history aims to explain why the Lionheart's reputation has fluctuated more than that of any other monarch. The study places Richard in Europe, the Mediterranean and Palestine and demonstrates that few rulers had more enemies or more influence. The paperback edition includes an updated bibliography.
