This book examines the nature of the family in medieval society, and why illegitimacy, which was so much condemned in theory, was often ignored in practice. It examines the careers of notable bastards - in particular the use made of bastardy proceedings to bar the sons of Edward IV (the ill-fated Princes in the Tower) from the throne.
