John Morton (c. 1420 - 1500) was one of the most important men in the land from the Wars of the Roses to the start of the Tudor dynasty. He served three kings as a councillor, Master of the Rolls, Lord Chancellor, bishop, Archbishop of Canterbury and Cardinal. His skill was a key factor in the establishment of the early Tudor state. No detailed biography on Morton has been produced since Victorian times. This book follows John Morton's career through the reigns of Henry VI and Edward IV, and his central role in opposition to Richard III, before his 15 years as Lord Chancellor to Henry VII, which were crucial to the establishment of the Tudor dynasty.
