The Crown's Chevalier

By Bryan McCarthy All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Adventure

Tyrol

In 1276 in the fourth year of his reign Edward I; King of England, Duke of Aquitaine and Lord of Ireland; was taken captive by Ottokar II; King of Bohemia, Duke of Austria, Styria and Carinthia and Margave of Carniola. In the early days of Edward’s imprisonment in Tyrol Castle, he received a message from his brother Edmund, the Earl of Lancaster and Leicester, whom Edward had left as regent in his absence. The message told Edward that Edmund was having difficulty getting the money for his ransom. A treacherous chevalier was robbing and attacking his domain! And yet there was something off about this message. The traitor was identified as Lord Wing the Crown’s Chevalier, Edward’s champion, who was the loyalist of his subjects. Something was wrong here and Edward knew it.

So it was that Edward wrote his own message. He wrote to his friend the King of Desmond to go to England and investigate Edmund’s claims, which were most likely false.

Unfortunately, the King of Desmond was unable to leave Ireland at the moment. Desmond was leading a campaign against a band of invading Scots and Welshmen and his eldest son was both bedridden and doltish leaving it to Desmond’s second son Conn, a boy of thirteen.

Upon receiving a message from Desmond stating that Conn would be the one going to England, Edward wrote up another message for Conn specifically to give him instructions. Conn’s instructions were to inform Edmund of his presence in England personally, then find people to stay with who could be trusted and most of all to never be alone with Edmund or his champion and Chief of Military Operations Barons Len de Beaumont and Dan Bertram of Igorboulder. Beaumont had been Edward’s previous champion and held a grudge against Edward for replacing him making it possible that Beaumont would kill Conn for being in England on Edward’s behalf while Bertram had murdered his own father.

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

shawnas26: I knocked it out in one sitting and enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for sharing! :) I'll be looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...
