Richard, last-born son of the Duke of York, was seven months short of his nineteenth birthday when he bloodied himself at the battles of Barnet and Tewkesbury, earning his legendary reputation as a battle commander and ending the Lancastrian line of succession. But Richard was far more than a warrior schooled in combat. He was also a devoted brother, an ardent suitor, a patron of the arts, an indulgent father, a generous friend. Above all, he was a man of fierce loyalties, great courage and firm principles, who was ill at ease among the intrigues of Edward's court. The very codes Richard lived by ultimately betrayed him. But he was betrayed by history too. Leaving no heir, his reputation was at the mercy of his successor, and Henry Tudor had too much at stake to risk mercy. Thus was born the myth of the man who would stop at nothing to gain the throne. Filled with the sights and sounds of battle, the customs and love of daily life, the rigours and dangers of Court politics and the touching concerns of very real men and women, The Sunne in Splendour is a richly coloured tapestry of medieval England.… (mer)

    En gammal skandal av Josephine Tey (LisaMaria_C)
    LisaMaria_C: For me The Daughter of Time and The Sunne in Splendour go hand in hand. The first is the classic mystery "solving" the mystery of the Two Princes in the Tower and the second a sympathetic biographical novel of Richard III which is well-researched and moving.… (mer)

Well written. Too damn long. ( )

I would give this book more stars if I could. Definitely one of the BEST books I have ever read in my life. I have read countless books on Richard III and this is by far the best. All the other books I've read, penned by other authors, seemed to keep key events happening the same way, this book totally flipped them which kept it interesting for me. At 900 pages, I read every word even though I know Richard's history like the back of my hand. LOVED IT! ( )

George R.R Martin must have read this 1,600 page historical dramatisation of the War of the Roses before embarking on his own Game Of Thrones.

Penman gives a sympathetic portrayal of the long-reviled king, Richard III, as a loving husband and honest man brought down by power-hungry schemers.

This period of history has always been vague to me, and Penman brought this volatile time to colourful life. Full of scheming, double-crossing, betrayal & scrambles for power. Fascinating. ( )

Borrow thru LACounty to read.

I read this years and years ago, but just recently snagged a copy at a library sale and a series of quiet summer afternoons seemed like a good time to pick it back up again. It was as good a novelization of the Wars of the Roses as I remember it being, and I'm glad I read it again. ( )

And what of those who didn't know him? What happens, too, when all who knew him are dead, when people know only what they've been told? What truth will we be talking about, then?
