More About the Author

Ralph Turner grew up in rural Arkansas, then went off to the University of Arkansas, where he majored in History. On graduation, he spent an academic year in France, a life-changing experience that determined him to pursue a scholarly career in medieval history. He took his Ph.D. at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore MD, in 1962 and began his teaching career at the Florida State University, Tallahassee FL. His first book, "The King and His Courts" was a work of legal history, although he did not know it at the time. He continued to work in that area, studying the personnel of the earliest English royal courts in two books and several articles. These collective biographies of obscure royal clerks and justices led eventually to the writing of biographies of English monarchs, King John, Richard Lionheart, and Eleanor of Aquitaine. He is a frequent visitor to England, having spent an academic year at Cambridge University as a Fellow of St. Edmund's Collete in 1980-81. He feels more at home in London than in New York. His interest in the French possessions of the Angevin kings of England led to frequent visits to France as well. He is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and a member of several American medieval groups. Now retired, he continues to live in Tallahassee, FL.
