The Captive Crown Summary


The Captive Crown: House of Stewart Trilogy 3 by Nigel Tranter

With the heir to the throne murdered, King Robert III a sick weakling, and his remaining son a child, Scotland and the Stewarts were in a bad way three generations on from the great Bruce. But two young men stood out: Alex Stewart, bastard son of the notorious Wolf of Badenoch, and his cousin, Brave John of Coull, a son of the hated regent. With their fortunes are entwined those of Sir Jamie Douglas, through whose eyes the story is told.
The Captive Crown concludes the great trilogy of novels which charts the rise against all odds of the royal House of Stewart.
