One Throw of the Dice


SKU: 9781909054431 Category:


Was Richard of Conisborough, the earl of Cambridge, a gambling man? We do not know, but his behaviour in 1415, when he unsuccessfully plotted to overthrow Henry V, certainly appears like a desperate wager.

This book may be the only biography of the luckless Richard. It explores his possible parentage, his marriage into the Mortimer family, and concludes with his orphaned son, Richard, who went on to father two kings.
