The first Plantagenet king inherited a blood-soaked kingdom from the Normans and transformed it into an empire that stretched at its peak from Scotland to Jerusalem. In this epic history, Dan Jones vividly resurrects this fierce and seductive royal dynasty and its mythic world. We meet the captivating Eleanor of Aquitaine, twice queen and the most famous woman in Christendom; her son, Richard the Lionheart, who fought Saladin in the Third Crusade; and King John, a tyrant who was forced to sign Magna Carta, which formed the basis of our own Bill of Rights. This is the era of chivalry, Robin Hood, and the Knights Templar, the era of the Black Death, the Black Prince, the founding of Parliament, and the Hundred Years' War.

Those who have the mentality of fourteen year old girls, the ins and out in social tactics and plots, will really enjoy this audiobook. Its primarily a narration of Plantagenet rulers, family dynasty, and other powerful people in late medieval Britain, with little about social, cultural, and economic history (they are mentioned, but only very briefly). I found the reader's voice irritating after a while, mainly his habit of extending the last syllable in a sentence.
