Longlisted for the HWA Non-Fiction Prize 2019

‘A vivid and humane study of the Plantagenets’ diabolical and devious first family – a real joy to read.’ Dan Jones, author of The Plantagenets

In The Restless Kings Nick Barratt presents the tumultuous struggle for supremacy between the first Plantagenet king, Henry II, and his four sons. This conflict tore apart the most powerful family in Western Europe and shaped the future of both Britain and France, with a significance which still resonates today.

Exploring the personalities and crises facing this extraordinary family, The Restless Kings brings to life some of the most remarkable, complex, flawed and brilliant monarchs ever to have sat on the English throne, and will challenge everything you thought you knew about the medieval world.
