The sinking of the White Ship is one of the greatest disasters in English history. Here, Sunday Times bestselling author Charles Spencer tells the real story behind the legend to show how one cataclysmic shipwreck changed England's course. In 1120, the White Ship was known as the fastest ship afloat. When it sank sailing from Normandy to England it was carrying aboard the only legitimate heir to King Henry I, William of Atheling. The raucous, arrogant young prince had made a party of the voyage, carousing with his companions and pushing wine into the eager hands of the crew. It was the middle of the night when the drunken helmsman rammed the ship into rocks. The next day only one of the three hundred who had boarded the ship was alive to describe the horrors of the slow shipwreck. William, the face of England's future had drowned along with scores of the social elite. The royal line severed and with no obvious heir to the crown, a civil war of untold violence erupted. Known fittingly as 'The Anarchy', this game of thrones saw families turned in on each other, with English barons, rebellious Welsh leaders and Scottish invaders all playing a part in the bloody, desperate scrum for power. One incredible shipwreck and two decades of violent uncertainty; England's course had changed forever.

'The most calamitous event ever to afflict the royal family of England.' 'Riveting' THE TIMES The White Ship sank in the English Channel on 25 November 1120, with other one survivor. On the 900th anniversary of the tragedy, this tale of anarchy, passion and revenge brings the past vividly to life. For fans of Ken Follett, Robert Harris and Antonia Fraser. --- REVENGE CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY. Normandy, 1119. A hotbed of malcontent barons is kept in fragile order by their duke - Henry I, King of England. Fresh from early years in a monastery, Bertold, the bastard son of one of these barons, meets Juliana, a countess and daughter of the King. He falls in love - or lust - but sees that his chance could come with work in her small court. Soon, he finds himself caught up in a ruthless feud between Juliana and her father. And when Juliana's daughters are offered as hostages for a strategic castle, even love may not be enough to allay a tragedy that will change everything. Reader praise for THE WHITE SHIP 'The period and characters are brought alive in a gripping tale' 'Wonderfully written and entirely captivating, this is an excellent historical novel' 'Told with humour combined with the drama and savagery of the time' 'I loved the history, I loved the characters - heroic and villainous'

We were sitting on a dilapidated seventeenth-century tomb in the late afternoon of an autumn day at the old burying-ground in Arkham, and speculating about the unnamable. Looking toward the giant willow in the centre of the cemetery, whose trunk has nearly engulfed an ancient, illegible slab, I had made a fantastic remark about the spectral and unmentionable nourishment which the colossal roots must be sucking in from that hoary, charnel earth; when my friend chided me for such nonsense and told me that since no interments had occurred there for over a century, nothing could possibly exist to nourish the tree in other than an ordinary manner. Besides, he added, my constant talk about "unnamable" and "unmentionable" things was a very puerile device, quite in keeping with my lowly standing as an author. I was too fond of ending my stories with sights or sounds which paralysed my heroes' faculties and left them without courage, words, or associations to tell what they had experienced. We know things, he said, only through our five senses or our religious intuitions; wherefore it is quite impossible to refer to any object or spectacle which cannot be clearly depicted by the solid definitions of fact or the correct doctrines of theology-preferably those of the Congregationalists, with whatever modifications tradition and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle may supply.
