Lord Geoffrey's Fancy

Alfred Duggan

See more book details



Lord Geoffrey’s Fancy is a beautifully detailed study of the world of the thirteenth century – a world of knights and crusaders, of courtly love and chilvalry.

Closely following historical fact, Duggan portrays the fate and fortunes of one Sir Geoffrey de Bruyere, ‘the best knight in all Romanie’. He traces his story through hunts and brightly coloured jousting tournaments to gallant battles, fighting for God and for justice against the Infidel Turk.
