Black Douglas

Black Douglas

It was almost inevitable that in the 15th century the new Scots royal house of Stewart would have to come to a reckoning with the great house of Douglas.

Young Will Douglas, the eight earl, was born to vast power, influence – and trouble. And with the boy-king James II on an uneasy throne, and scoundrels ruling Scotland, the death of Will’s father plunged him suddenly
into a world where might prevailed and the end justified the means.
