Lion Rampant

Bernard Knight

A historical epic by Bernard Knight, Lion Rampant is set in medieval Wales and features the tale of Nest, a princess known as 'the Welsh Helen of Troy'. Nest was a lover of King Henry I of England, married the steward of a Pembrokeshire castle (giving rise to the FitzStephen and FitzGerald families, including Gerald of Wales), and was later abducted by a marauding Welsh noble. This is the story of the adventure, intrigue, and warfare in the various kingdoms of Wales during the twelfth century.
