Join historian Sophie Therese Ambler for a riveting account of the medieval warrior knight who overthrew his King by marching on Henry III (who authorised the timber from the Forest of Dean for the roof of Blackfriars). He marched on his King's hall in Westminster in 1258 and seized the reins of power. She tells the story of Simon de Montfort - England’s first revolutionary - with a clarity which reveals all of the excitement, chaos and tragedy of England’s first revolution.
