When William the Bastard  died, he left England to William Rufus and Normandy to Robert.  To his youngest son Henry, he left five thousand pounds in silver and the advice to take care of it and himself, for he would survive his brothers to become England’s King.   In due course, he obtained land from the improvident Robert and proved himself to be an able lord. His brothers now felt threatened and decided he needed curbing  – penniless, and in exile in Europe. But time would prove his father to be right… An extremely good author who can write a factual historical story without turning it into a romance. Cover art by Ken White.
