      William II Penguin Monarchs PDF/EPUB Í William II william mobile, penguin epub, monarchs pdf, William II ebok, William II Penguin Monarchs ePUB355I wanted to like this a bit but it was very interesting I've mainly heard not great things about William II or William Rufus And I like that Gillingham decided to take the line that it's wrong He's mainly seen as preface to Henry I and even in this biography it felt like it was going that way

      William II Penguin Monarchs PDF/EPUB Í William II william mobile, penguin epub, monarchs pdf, William II ebok, William II Penguin Monarchs ePUBI gave this five because the author scrutinises the historical sources and questions them throughoutWhen considering monarchs from such a long time ago we are only ever reading the constructed narratives of others History is textual and texts are historical This presents all kinds of problems for the reader John Gillingham acknowledges this and maintains its significance throughout the bookGillingham concludes that William II was the target of an attempted character assassination

      William II Penguin Monarchs PDF/EPUB Í William II william mobile, penguin epub, monarchs pdf, William II ebok, William II Penguin Monarchs ePUBThis is an excellent account of the life and reign of William Rufus Written with verve and style it is interested in the character assassination of William than his actual assassination and is skilful in negotiating the minefield of contradictory sources and myriad motivations Following on from his father the conqueror was always going to be a tall order though Gillingham emphasises both his military skill not least in spending the right money at the right time to achieve a military victory The 'problem' of his brothers Robert and Henry was never far from view as was the need to retain command of an empire across the channel coupled with hostility closer to home in Scotland and problematically in Wales Gillingham also finds time to focus on other aspects of Williams character that were criticised not least his supposedly deviant sexual proclivities This is all dealt with carefully and with out lapses into prurience Indeed Gillingha

      William II Penguin Monarchs PDF/EPUB Í William II william mobile, penguin epub, monarchs pdf, William II ebok, William II Penguin Monarchs ePUBA good short introduction to a Norman king that I knew very little about previously I enjoyed the use of the relatively scarce primary source material which was well applied and made me want to follow up some of the chronicles in detail and as with all the books in this series that I've read the images at the centr

      William II Penguin Monarchs PDF/EPUB Í William II william mobile, penguin epub, monarchs pdf, William II ebok, William II Penguin Monarchs ePUBMaster historian John Gillingham paints an illustrious picture of a king famous for being assassinated by devoting not than a couple of paragraphs to his demise The author focuses instead on William Rufus' hidden record as a powerful ruler much in the model of his father his

      William II Penguin Monarchs PDF/EPUB Í William II william mobile, penguin epub, monarchs pdf, William II ebok, William II Penguin Monarchs ePUBA very enjoyable short read on a less well documented monarch Gillingham clearly makes good use of the limited source material available and provides a concise yet insightful overview However it was slightly disappointing purely because I had thoroughly enjoyed the biography in this series on Henry II far but this by no means makes this a bad read Def
