The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick

On Saturday, 19 January the BBC2 historical documentary series will be showing a programme about William Marshal, the greatest knight of the Middle Ages. Elizabeth Chadwick has written two acclaimed novels about him, The Greatest Knight and The Scarlet Lion. Carla Nayland posted a perceptive review of The Greatest Knight on her blog here.

Her latest novel, A Place Beyond Courage, is about William Marshal’s father, John.

These are thoroughly absorbing novels, rich in character and atmosphere, from an author who, having found her true metier, has grown in stature and maturity. It seems that her novels are at last beginning to reach the wide readership they deserve.

If you’re interested in how a historical novelist goes about her research, visit Elizabeth Chadwick’s blog Living The History. It doesn’t all come from books, you know.

  2. Hola Marko, el dibujo esta muy padre, solo una observacion, veo que en la mayoria de tus dibujos dejas las manos inconclusas o las escondes, no se por que sea esto, pero seria bueno que practicaras mas el dibujo anatomico de las manos, solo en caso de que ese sea el motivo de que no las pongas completas en tus dibujos, sorry, solo es un comentario y una critica constructiva, saludos Come on
