Philip Augustus: king of France, 1180-1223
Jim Bradbury offers a view of Philip's many different relationships -- with the Angevians, with his vassals, with the French church, with the papacy, with his two wives and his mistress Agnes of Meran, with his fellow crusaders, and his fellow rulers -- as well as an insight into the nature of monarchy in the central Middle Ages.
