Walter Mauny biography

Sunday, 4 September 2022

Amberley Publishing has released the first ever biography of Walter Mauny, an important knight and a key figure in the reign of Edward III. Mauny is far from being a household name today, even among history readers, but this biography in addition to examining Mauny’s life is a significant study of Edward’s reign in a formative stage of England’s development. The task of writing the entry for Mauny in the Oxford Dictionaly of National Biography was assigned to Jonathan Sumption, the author of the towering work on the Hundred Year’s War, soon to conclude with the fifth volume. ‘Edward III’s Faithful Knight: Walter Mauny and His Legacy' is available now.
