This is what Sidney Painter had in mind when he wrote a biography of William Marshall. The subject has proved a peculiarly fortunate one. The fourth son of John fitz Gilbert, marshal of the king's court, William for the first forty years of his life was a landless knight who devoted most of his time and energy to tournaments. In the year 1189 by his marriage to the daughter and heiress of Earl Richard of Pembroke, William became a great feudal lord with fiefs in Normandy, England, Wales, and Ireland. Finally in 1216 he was chosen regent of England for the young king, Henry III, and his biography becomes for three years the history of England.

I learned after reading the Painter biography of William Marshal that it has been largely superseded by David Crouch's (which I will be reading soon), but I believe it still has much to offer. For this work, first published in 1933, Painter draws heavily on the Histoire de Guillaume le Marechal, a contemporary chronicle written by an obvious Marshal partisan. Naturally, the Histoire's version on Marshal's life, the glowing but vague physical descriptions, the legendary exploits and such, is to be taken with a grain of salt.

A concise, well written and broad overview of feudal England and France. Set in a stormy time of continuous and contentious intrigue, William Marshal's biography views the unpredictable life at court and on the tournament circuit in the 12th century, spanning the kingships of Stephen, Henry II, Henry the Younger, Richard the Lion Hearted, John and Henry III. Viewed as the 'world's greatest knight', "The Marshal" was honored as a noble character of loyalty, political savviness, and honor in a turbulent century of unrest and uncertainty.
SIdney Painter's book is thoroughly researched and complete, offering helpful footnotes and in-depth index. This is the third book on WIlliam Marshal I have read, and it is unquestionably the best to date. It is lively, entertaining and engaging and offers the reader an excellent panorama of knights, knaves and kings.

Old-fashioned biography, but still a classic.

Big fan of William Marshal. Nice book to add to my collection.

Didn't do it for me. I got bored with it quickly. It just didn't hold my attention. Maybe too many facts and not enough story.
