The importance of rulership and rebellion in the history of the Anglo-Norman world between 1066 and the early thirteenth century is incontrovertible. The power, government, and influence of kings, queens and lords dominated society and was frequently challenged and resisted. But while biographies of rulers, studies of central, local and seigniorial government, and works on political struggles abound, many aspects of rulership and rebellion remain to be explored. This volume, dedicated to the pioneering work of Edmund King, will make an original and timely contribution to our knowledge of Anglo-Norman history.
