From humble beginnings and a narrow escape from death in childhood, William Marshall steadily rises through the ranks to become tutor in arms to the son of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Based on fact, this is the story of William Marshal, the greatest knight of the Middle Ages, unsurpassed in the tourneys, adeptly manoeuvring through the colourful, dangerous world of power and politics to become one of the most powerful magnates of the realm and eventually Regent of England.

    " This is a wonderful historical novel. Chadwick brings history to life without taking such liberties and making you say,"that is just too bizarre to believe". I normally get a bit bored with longer historical novels, but this is one I couldn't wait to read each night! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Addie Winters | 2/8/2014

    " I love Elizabeth Chadwick but this book seemed a little off. The facts were right on but it didn't quite feel right. Almost like someone else wrote it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Callie Mcgonegal | 2/5/2014

    " couldn't stop researching additional information...People, places, events and such... the story really draws the reader in.. Can't wait to read more by this author and about the Marshall family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 2/2/2014

    " Audiobook - Excellent narration, though a very long book. Kind of a biography of Marshall, rather than a standard story of fiction, since this blends both. I loved the idea of a man of integrity, loyalty & honor in the days of selfish, fickle kings, and Marshall was a true hero. I'm interested to see what happens in the second half of his life (in the next book) to see if it's as adventurous as the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/28/2014

    " This piece of historical fiction was well-researched & very interesting...particularly since William Marshall is apparently an ancestor of mine! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 1/20/2014

    " what do you want ? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 1/16/2014

    " Well written historical novel about the life and times of William Marshal, advisor to Henry II, Richard the lionhearted and John. I particularly enjoyed the fact-based descriptions of daily life, major historical events, and the main characters, male and female. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chantelle | 1/11/2014

    " Loved it. What a great story. If only I could keep straight which of her books I've read/have and which I don't. Must read them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 12/26/2013

    " This is the first book by Chadwick that I've read, and I will definitely read more, starting with her novel that picks up where this one left off in William Marshal's life. She is a wonderful writer and includes incredible detail about life in the Middle Ages at court. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J Hennig | 12/12/2013

    " I just flat enjoyed this book. The history was tight, the characters interesting even past their notoriety, the writing competent and charismatic. I will read more of her work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary Prawdzik | 12/1/2013

    " I had some knowledge of William Marshall through SKP's H2-Eleanor series of books. However, this book brought a more substantial of him to the fore. However, I do think this was a bit more "romance" that I would have liked. I'm looking forward to the others in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katrina | 7/30/2013

    " Good story, well researched (like Chadwick's other books), but I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 7/5/2013

    " Based on the life of a knight from the 12th century, William Marshal, this fictional history was entertaining. It took me a little while to get into the story, but eventually looked forward to what was next. It was romantical and a bit harlequin, which only added to my entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesli | 5/11/2013

    " Good read. Not sure I will read the rest. Slightly annoyed by "come hell or high water" showing up in the book. Overall, extremely readable, well-researched, and engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Gennaro | 12/11/2012

    " Excellent book about William Marshall, a knight that served Kings Henry I, Henry II, John, and Richard the Lion Hearted. Great read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin Hawkins | 10/15/2012

    " Can't finish it. Lost interest. Not a big historial fiction reader to begin with, but I tried. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gayle | 10/29/2011

    " I enjoy this book. Historical pieces are my favorite. It is fiction based upon a real Knight who served Henry II and King Richard. I look forward to reading the other books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Bracewell | 10/17/2011

    " Enjoyed this very, very much. Made me fall in love with William Marshall. Chadwick's knowledge of knights and tourneys is daunting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 5/6/2011

    " I would normally take any Sharon Kay Penman book over this, but this was okay in a pinch. I honestly don't have much else to say about it. Three stars are my go-to for books I neither hated nor loved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 4/26/2011

    " Loved this book, loved the follow up book. My favorite knight in an era of English barbarians. But, Carma is right. A little more depth of character would have been good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 4/4/2011

    " I really like historical fiction and this one follows a knight through his trials and tribulations. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 4/3/2011

    " The Greatest Knight is one of those books that once you get into it you can't put it down. Elizabeth Chadwick creates an entrancing cast of characters and events recalled straight from history. Reading this book is compulsive, and once read it is impossible not to want to read it again!! "
