The Greatest Knight

Dr Saul David investigates the violent world of the medieval melee tournament.

Unlike the better known joust, this was a brutal brawl with sharpened weapons, few rules, and one undisputed champion- William Marshal.

Saul investigates Marshal’s life, discovering his epic rise from a tournament champion to the Regent of England who saved a kingdom on the battlefield. Saul also experiments with Marshal’s weapons.
