The Black Death, also known as the Black Plague, ravaged Europe in the mid-fourteenth century, decimating estimates of up to half of the population. But how did it come around, and how was it dealt with?
The 5th and 6th Plantagenet kings were drastically different from one another – Edward I, the Hammer of the Scots, and his son, often regarded as one of England’s worst kings.

The second instalment of the Plantagenets Mini-Series sees one of the most notorious villainous English kings of all time, and another who people have hardly ever heard of!
