Description

The two major battles of Simon de Montfort - Lewes & Evesham - provide a new take on a rarely covered period of English history. These battles took place in a unique period of English history before the long bow had gained predominance on the battlefield, when cavalry was still the most lethal weapon in the English arsenal. Lewes and Evesham bookend Simon's brief period as the power broker of England. Lewes takes place in 1264 and pits Simon with the support from many of the prominent barons against Henry III and his royalist faction. His victory and imprisonment of Henry made him king in all but name. Evesham, fought one year later, facing the much more dangerous Prince Edward, was Simon's last battle.
