Описание

George, Duke of Clarence has had so little written about him, that historians face many questions: Where was he born? What was he like? What set him against his brother Edward IV? He played a central role in the Wars of the Roses—but was he for York or Lancaster? Is the story of his drowning in a barrel of wine—as in Richard III—true? And was "false, fleeting, perjur'd Clarence" in some ways the role model behind the 16th-century defamation of Richard III? Finally, where was he buried and what became of his body? Can the DNA used recently to test the remains of his younger brother, Richard III, also reveal the truth about the supposed "Clarence bones" in Tewkesbury? John Ashdown-Hill exposes the myths surrounding this pivotal and central Plantagenet, with remarkable results.
