Black Douglas

Nigel Tranter

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Historical fiction

The turbulent tale of the 15th century feud between the Douglas family and the Stewarts during the reign of James II King of Scots.

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.
