The disadvantages of depending on a divine right of royalty: a mad king, feuding cousins terrorizing the peasants, and butchering thugs looking for traitors in the city. The book gives the back story on why the Burgundians were against Joan of Arc.

A fascinating episode in French history, thoroughly researched and finely written, "Blood Royal, features one of history's first detectives. The detective solves a conspiracy to assassinate a member of the French royal family in 1407. Details of which were described on a thirty-foot parchment scroll."
