The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England  by Dan Jones certainly proves that family dysfunction is hardly something new. Readers will learn of a dynasty that began with a king best known for accidentally causing the death of a saint to the family final scion whose paranoia and tyranny cost him his throne and his life. Fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and FIre will find an interesting paralell between the drama-ridden chronicles of the noble houses of Westeros and the epic struggles of a family whose exploits forged and lost an empire, shaped a country, and inspired some of the most radical political changes of the time.
