27 editions published between 1981 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry VI is the youngest monarch ever to have ascended the English throne and the only English king to have been acknowledges by the French as rightfully King of France. His reign was the third longest since the Norman conquest and he came close to being declared a saint. This masterly study, unparalleled in its informative detail, examines the entire span of the king's reign, from the death of Henry V in 1422, when Henry was only nine months old, to the period of his insanity at the beginning of the Wars of the Roses and his dethronement in 1461, preceding his murder ten years later. This classic re-assessment of the third Lancastrian king is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of fifteenth-century England."--Publisher description

Conquerors and conquered in medieval Wales by Ralph A Griffiths( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between the last decades of the eleventh century and the mid-sixteenth century the society, culture and government of Wales were fundamentally recast by powerful forces, Norman and English, from the east. These essays, published between 1963 and 1991, examine some of the consequences of this process, which was often violent and stoutly resisted by Welsh communities and their rulers. Gradually, Wales came to terms with its conquerors and the leaders of society, be they Welsh or immigrant in origin, adopted attitudes that had much in common. Despite periodic uprisings, peculiar modes of government and administration evolved in the marches of Wales (which were the first conquests) and the principality of Wales (which Welsh princes lost during the reign of Edward I) that lasted until Henry VIII's time. In particular, the foundation of scores of new towns and chartered boroughs aided the transformation of the country and the evolution of a distinctive Anglo-Welsh society with important links with England and the wider world." "These essays illuminate these and other themes, drawing on evidence - some of it revealed for the first time when the essays were published - that explains the resistance movements against Edward I and Edward II, and the rebellion of Owain Glyndwr against Henry IV. They analyse the gentry class as it emerged in Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire and Glamorgan, and also the character of a range of towns, from Aberystwyth in the west to Cardiff in the south-east. Underlying all of these historical developments lies the crucially important - and older - link between Wales and the West Country across the Severn divide."--Jacket

Wales and the welsh in the Middle Ages : essays presented to J. Beverley Smith by Ralph A Griffiths( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book honours the achievement of J. Beverley Smith during a notable career as a teacher and writer of history, and an editor in the service of his profession. The essays are contributed by fellow historians from across Britain and include some of the countryâ⁰₉s outstanding scholars. â⁰Wales and the Welsh in the Middle Agesâ⁰₉ has three overlapping themes that offer new insights: (1) the politics and political culture of Wales, from early kingdoms and the succession of their rulers, the clash of Welsh, French and English cultures and the inter-relationships forged, two of hitherto puzzling chronicle sources associated with the abbeys of Cwmhir and Neath, to the implications of the Edwardian conquest as revealed by later medieval poetry and the reputation of Welsh soldiers in English armies; (2) the comparative study of law, the economy and society, not only in English, Welsh and Marcher contexts but also drawing comparisons with Spain and Brittany, opportunities for social advancement in town and country, including the patronage of church building, with illustrative narratives at St Davidâ⁰₉s cathedral, Grosmont and Newton Nottage in south Wales, and Llanidloes in central Wales; and (3) the emergence of approaches to the study of medieval Wales in the early twentieth century that added new strands to our understanding of Walesâ⁰₉s history, taking William Rees as a pioneer example. And each theme is seen in a wide historical context. A memoir of Beverley Smith and a list of his writings complete the book
