Lily and the Lion Summary


Lily and the Lion by Maurice Druon

'This was the original game of thrones' George R.R. Martin

The royal house of France has fallen. Charles IV is dead, fulfilling the curse of the Templars once and for all. This leaves the path to the throne open for Robert of Artois to place his cousin, Philippe of Valois, upon it. Having committed fraud, perjury and murder in the name of the new king, Robert expects to receive a title and his full reward.

But the days of betrayal are far from over and Robert is banished to England. In the land of France's enemies vengeance sparks fresh conflict as King Edward III and his new ally prepare for war. As swords are sharpened the lion wakes and a pretender threatens France once more ...

Lily and the Lion Reviews


Iron kings and strangled queens, battles and betrayals, lies and lust, the curse of the Templars, the doom of a great dynasty and all of it (well, most of it) straight from the pages of history, and believe me, the Starks and the Lannisters have nothing on the Capets and Plantagenets. Whether you are a history buff or a fantasy fan, Druon's epic will keep you turning pages. This was the original game of thrones George R.R. Martin

Blood-curdling tale of intrigue, murder, corruption and sexual passion The Sunday Times

Dramatic and colourful as a Dumas romance but stiffened by historical accuracy and political insight The Sunday Times

Barbaric, sensual, teeming with life, based in wide reading and sound scholarship among the best historical novels The Times Literary Supplement"
