The white king charles i traitor murderer martyr leanda de lisle on amazoncom free shipping on qualifying offers from the new york times bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction comes the tragic story of charles i. De lisle is the author of three well received books on the tudor period the most recent being the bestselling tudor the family story in 2013 in white king she uses rare and in some cases . White king is that rare thing a page turning history that gently but insistently asks provocative questions about a period on which our ideas have become all too fixed the financial times leanda de lisle demonstrates with great skill that there was nothing inevitable about the civil war. The white king leanda de lisle is one of my favorite authors she tells a compelling story and portrays historical characters with understanding and empathy there are a few weaknesses with this book the map could use more detail adding the sites of the battles would have been helpful. The white king charles i traitor murderer martyr by leanda de lisle certainly has quite a provocative titlecharles i remains a very polarising figure in much the same manner as his contemporary oliver cromwell and the labels of traitor and murderer will undoubtedly ruffle feathers of the more staunch monarchists out there
