Edward the Confessor by Frank Barlow

Frank Barlow's magisterial biography, first published in 1970 and now reissued with new material, rescues Edward the Confessor from contemporary myth and subsequent bogus scholarship. Disentangling verifiable fact from saintly legend, he vividly re-creates the final years of the Anglo-Danish monarchy and examines England before the Norman Conquest with deep insight and great historical understanding.

"Deploying all the resources of formidable scholarship, [Barlow] has recovered the real Edward." — Spectator
