Would You Like To Enter The Thirteenth Century Without Losing Your Head?
(As Piers Gaveston And William Wallace Did!)
Hello, I'm Darius Stransky, Writer/Author and I'd like to thank you for visiting. I write 'Historical Faction' (that's Fiction rooted in Fact).
May I be so bold as to assume you have a love of history and historical novels? Or maybe you want to learn more of real life in the Thirteenth-Century? Well, if either of these applies to you then you're in the right place. This is a short page so bear with me. Thank you
The King's Jew" series. Set during the lifetime of King Edward the First (1239 to 1307) One of the greatest Plantagenet Kings.

Medieval England – where disease, starvation, war, and death are always present.
The author portrays an unflinching view of the poverty and hardship suffered by the people who inhabit London’s squalor, and of those working on the land. All of them subject to the whims of the ruling elite whose struggle for power is never-ending, and where loyalty is at a premium, while treachery and rebellion lurk beneath oaths of fealty made to the king.
The story revolves around Cristian Gilleson, a child born of rape, the illegitimate son of a lord, and who later, discovering his mother was a Jew, played a role, which I feel is little known, in Britain’s history.
But what makes The King's Jew series extraordinary is the time, the thirteenth century; the place, feudal England; and the subject, the life and times of Edward The First. Stransky has re-created the crude, flamboyant England of the Middle Ages in every detail.
