The Captive Crown

The Captive Crown

With the heir to the throne murdered, King Robert III a sick weakling,
and his remaining son a child, Scotland and the Stewarts were in a bad
way three generations on from the great Bruce. But two young men stood
out: Alex Stewart, bastard son of the notorious Wolf of Badenoch, and
his cousin, Brave John of Coull, a son of the hated regent. With their
fortunes are entwined those of Sir Jamie Douglas, through whose eyes the
story is told.

The Captive Crown concludes the great trilogy of novels which charts the
rise against all odds of the royal House of Stewart, as told by Nigel
Tranter, master of Scottish historical fiction.
