About this title


The story of the loyal friendship between Alexander II, who ascended the Scottish throne in 1214 at the age of 16, and Patrick, heir to the ancient - and all but rival - line of the Cospatricks, Earls of Dunbar. The friendship was to withstand treachery and danger, rivalry and heartache.

From the Publisher:

The youthful Alexander II, who ascended the Scottish throne in 1214 at the age of 16, was delighted to welcome to his court a young man of royal blood, heir to the ancient ‹ and all but rival ‹ line of the Cospatricks, Earls of Dunbar. Rather than begrudge Alexander his crown, Patrick, Master of Dunbar, was to serve his monarch well and became his true and closest friend. And Alexander needed such a friend in those turbulent times, with the ever-present threat of the English and the Norsemen. This steadfast royal friendship was to withstand both treachery and danger, rivalry and heartache during a momentous period in Scottish history. DISTRIBUTOR: Trafalgar Square Books
