The Titles in the Bundle

The Greatest Knight

"Royal protector. Loyal servant. Forgotten hero. 

A penniless young knight with few prospects, William Marshal is plucked from obscurity when he saves the life of Henry II's formidable queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine. In gratitude, she appoints him tutor to the heir to the throne, the volatile and fickle Prince Henry. But being a royal favorite brings its share of danger and jealousy as well as fame and reward.
A writer of uncommon historical integrity and accuracy, Elizabeth Chadwick resurrects the true story of one of England's greatest forgotten heroes in a captivating blend of fact and fiction. The Greatest Knight restores William Marshal to his rightful place at the pinnacle of the Middle Ages, reflecting through him the triumphs, scandals, and power struggles that haven't changed in eight hundred years.


The Greatness of William Marshal: The descendants of the Greatest Knight himself include George Washington and Winston Churchill, as well as the Stuart kings of England and Scotland. He was partly responsible for the Magna Carta. He vowed his body to the Templars and is buried in Temple Church in London.

The Appeal of the Time Period: There are very few novels about Marshal, and no one has covered him as in depth as Elizabeth Chadwick has. In addition, unlike the Tudor era, there are not extensive amounts of historical fiction set in the 13th century.

The Integrity of the Research: Elizabeth Chadwick's research is impeccable. She not only visited many locations, but she re-enacted with a living history society where a quarter of the membership are either historians or archaeologists, and she collected and used replica artifacts from the period and engaged in experimental archaeology. She has taken courses in various medieval studies to facilitate her knowledge.

The Breadth of the Audience: Readers who are fans of Sharon Kay Penman, Anya Seton, Diana Gabaldon, Phillipa Gregory, and Jean Plaidy will like Elizabeth Chadwick. She appeals to readers who are looking for historical accuracy and strong, believable characters, readers who want to feel that they are being immersed in the period with well-rounded characters".

The Scarlet Lion

"The Legend of the Greatest Knight Lives On

William Marshal’s skill with a sword and loyalty to his word have earned him the company of kings, the lands of a magnate, and the hand of Isabelle de Clare, one of England’s wealthiest heiresses. But he is thrust back into the chaos of court when King Richard dies. Vindictive King John clashes with William, claims the family lands for the Crown—and takes two of the Marshal sons hostage. The conflict between obeying his king and rebelling over the royal injustices threatens the very heart of William and Isabelle’s family. Fiercely intelligent and courageous, fearing for the man and marriage that light her life, Isabelle plunges with her husband down a precarious path that will lead William to more power than he ever expected".

For the Kings Favor 

"A Bittersweet Tale of Love, Loss, and the Power of Royalty

When Roger Bigod arrives at King Henry II’s court to settle a bitter inheritance dispute, he becomes enchanted with Ida de Tosney, young mistress to the powerful king. A victim of Henry’s seduction and the mother of his son, Ida sees in Roger a chance to begin a new life. But Ida pays an agonizing price when she leaves the king, and as Roger’s importance grows and he gains an earldom, their marriage comes under increasing strain. Based on the true story of a royal mistress and the young lord she chose to marry, For the King’s Favor is Elizabeth Chadwick at her best".

  1. The Scarlet Lion was the first Chadwick book I ever read. From the first chapter I was completely mesmerized! She has become one of my favorite authors and I just can't get enough :)

  2. Carrie, was that not a good read or what? I loved that one. I have to admit thought between the three "The Greatest Knight" was my favorite. You have got to read that one if you have not already. It is a must.

    Svea, oooh that one was good. I actually started that one then put it down and drove straight to the bookstore and got "The Greatest Knight" and I am still so glad I did. She memorized me too, she literally hooked, lined, and sinker me. Now I am forever on the Chadwick watch. I guess we are both in the same book I can not get enough of her either.

  3. I haven't read any of her novels, but I really want to. They sound great.

  4. Jennifer, you HAVE to read "The Greatest Knight" it is so so so so FREAKING hot that William Marshall is one sexy sexy knight. I had like day dreams of him for monthsssss' after I read it.

  5. I just ordered The Greatest Night, ostensibly for my mother, but really for me to borrow! I own a handful of early Chadwick published here by SMP but have been eagerly awaiting the new Sourcebook editions.

  6. If I have an ereader by then and don't already have the books I will definitely consider it.

  7. CLM, haha that is so something I would do. Just trust me you will love it.

    Librarypat, my sister got an e-reader and loves it and then my other sister got a kindle as a gift. I am leery about them especially since C.W. Gortner posted an thing on how they track your info and some of them track your location, sex and other very odd things. I think it is an invasion of privacy that I am not ready to give up just yet. I am going to wait indefinitely if the companies do not stop watching their customer. I just think it is creepy.
