Críticas:

" Fine, timely... jaunty, authoritative... Morris has already proven himself as a 13th-century royal biographer - his study of Edward I is a modern classic. He is on form here, too. His split-chronology approach to John’s life before and after the loss of Normandy highlights just how disastrous it was for the king’s reign and reputation." (DAN JONES Sunday Times)

"A riveting and timely portrait of an execrable king" (Jessie Childs, author of God's Traitors)

"The John that emerges... is still a tyrant, but a more complex figure in a complex time. His importance for us, concludes the historian and broadcaster Marc Morris, is that “his oppressions led to the creation of a document that ensured they would not be repeated”." ( Sunday Telegraph)

" A compelling portrait of a king whose 17-year reign witnessed ,ass oppression on a huge scale... injected with a lively fluency... A fine reminder of the huge influence of Magna Carta that continues to form the basis of our freedoms even today." ( Express)
