FYI: Costain's _The Three Edwards_ is not a novel. It is part of Costain's
4 volume history of the Plantagenet Family. In fact, that particular volume
was required outside reading when I took English History more years ago than
I'm willing to admit. You can probably find more up-to-date information
elsewhere but the basic research is sound.
