Elizabeth Chadwick’s THE GREATEST KNIGHT – Splendid Story of a Historical Knight and his Lady Love in the time of the Plantagenets
This is the second in the William Marshall series (see list
below). Set in the 12th century, it tells the story of William
Marshall, a young knight who rose to be the greatest knight on the tourney
circuit and the favorite of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Chadwick paints a vivid
picture of a man who took advantage of every opportunity and, with honor and
commitment, never disappointed. Along the way, he meets his true love, Isabelle de Clare, a
countess who made William a magnate. I enjoyed seeing their love develop and
the strong woman Isabelle was, admired by her husband. Together, they forge an
alliance that withstood the test of time.
I love how Chadwick weaves historical fact with her
believable fiction. The characters come alive and the history unfolds all
around you. Truly a splendid adventure well told!
