"Alexander III, King of Scots"

AUTHOR: Marion Campbell
ISBN: 1 899863 55 9
PAGES: 296 inc. maps and photographs


A new full-length biography of this important Scots monarch, whose accession just 750 years ago followed the unexpected demise of Alexander II (in Kerrera, July 1249). Known to every schoolchild for his own untimely end one dark and stormy night, but perhaps not fully appreciated for his work in maintaining and enhancing a coherent and independent Scots nation, this life of Alexander III by gifted historian and novelist Marion Campbell is a timely and riveting read. The man and his kingdom are thoroughly researched and the relationship between Scotland and other European countries is examined, together with the complex connections between their royal houses. The fruit of an abiding interest, this is a stimulating work and will be much enjoyed.
