The first comprehensive history of the power behind the throne in the Wars of the Roses At a time when family name was everything, the Nevills were the most influential people in England. They saw the Wars of the Roses from both sides – Yorkist and Lancastrian – but mainly from their own. Their men lived and died violently, and the Nevill women married leading players on both sides. Their bitter and violent rivalry with the Percy family tumbled into the wider political unrest that resulted in the Wars of the Roses, the ongoing feud between York and Lancaster that deposed two kings. This is the first definitive history of a fascinating family, and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the Wars of the Roses. AUTHOR: K.L. Clark is an historian and author whose research of the Nevill family and the Wars of the Roses spans nearly a decade, during which she has built up an extensive collection of primary sources, books and articles. Her previous books include two historical novels and she is currently writing a third, as well as presenting two papers to the Richard III Society on the Nevill/Percy feud. She writes a popular blog, A Nevill Feast, which is read by tens of thousands. She lives in Australia with her family.
