Summary (From the publisher):

For a while the people loved their beautiful young king, Richard II. But then his extravagances and his indifference to the peoples' needs aroused their wrath. John of Gaunt, his uncle, watched all this with great interest. Nothing could slake his thirst for the throne, not even his beautiful wife, Catherine.

Here is a vivid picture of Richard's court, of his spendthrift ways, his folly, his devotion to his favorite, Robert de Vere, and his love for two Queens. And most of all, of his headlong journey toward disaster.
