King Edward II was deposed and apparently murdered by the lover of his estranged Queen Isabella, Sir Roger Mortimer. This biography of 14th century England's evil genius offers a new and controversial theory regarding the fate of Edward II.
Ian Mortimer graduated with a degree in History from the University of Exeter in 1989, then qualified as an archivist at UCL and worked in the Devon Record Office and the Public Record Office before taking up a post in the Department of History at Reading University. In 1994 he moved to the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts. In1999 he moved back to the University of Exeter, where he has been employed since, in a dual capacity as lecturer in primary sources for British history and as an archivist. He has lectured on a very wide range of historical themes, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in 1998.
