'Simon de Montfort (c1208-65). Champion of England? Martyr?'

Dr Huw Ridgeway re-assesses the meteroric career of an icon of English history. Simon became Earl of Leicester and brother-in-law of Henry III. A Crusader and international celebrity, he ultimately perished in the civil war, challenging royal rule in the name of reform.
