Book Giveaway: Philippa of Hainault

Today is the official release date of my biography of Edward III's queen Philippa of Hainault (c. 1314-69), the first biography of her since 1910. It was really exciting to have the chance to tell her amazing story. I have TWO free signed hardback copies of the book to give away! As always, the competition is open to everyone, wherever you are in the world; all you need is a postal address. To enter the draw, do one of the following:

1) Email me at: edwardofcaernarfon(at)yahoo.com.
2) Leave a comment here, with your email address, please, so I can contact you if you're a winner.
3) Send me a private message on my Edward II page on Facebook, also with your email address.
4) If you're on my friends list on Facebook, or if we follow each other on Twitter, you're also very welcome to send me a message there.

The deadline is 31 October 2019, so you have more than two weeks to enter. On 1 November, I'll email the winners and ask you for your postal addresses so I can send you your copies. Good luck!

Oh, I'd love to win a copy of this, it looks so good. I've always wondered about Philippa's life; there's so little written about her.

Kathryn,

Thank you for writing the book Philippa of Hainault. I look forward to reading it as I am a descendent of her and her husband, Edward III. However, the amazing part is that I am also a descendent of 4 of her sons, and can trace every generation from me up through each of them:

Edmund Langely Duke of York
John of Gaunt Duke of Lancaster
Thomas of Woodstock Duke of Gloucester
Lionel of Antwerp Duke of Clarence
