52/4

A bit more history this week-


AGINCOURT 
The King, The Campaign, The Battle
by Juliet Barker

The plot was to capture the king and his brothers by disguising himself and a group of his fellow conspirators as mummers for the annual Twelfth Night celebrations at Eltham Palace in January 1414.

If you liked Henry V you need this book!

[Hope you are feeling better, Helena :) ]
