The Bigod Earls of Norfolk in the Thirteenth Century


Roger III Bigod (c.1209-70) and his nephew Roger IV (1245-1306), successive earls of Norfolk, were members of a powerful and important medieval family. This study of these two earls, Roger III and IV, examines their lives, personalities, politics and actions, most notably their challenging of Henry III and Edward I respectively. Based on unpublished manuscripts, charters and accounts, Marc Morris examines their motives for political, public action, as well as their private affairs, the extent of their landed estates, their incomes, relationships and affiliations, and building works. A calendar of Bigod charters and an itinerary of Roger III are among the data given in appendices.
