In this ground-breaking new book, Suzanne Bartlet draws on extensive research in the fiscal archives of Medieval England, most notably those of the Jewish Exchequer, to examine the family history behind the famous murder.  This is the story of Licoricia and her route to wealth through advantageous marriages and business acumen, the close relationship she appears to have had with King Henry III and altogether more mixed fortunes of her sons.
