<p>King John II of France is missing from the pages of history. There are no movies, no books, hardly a Wikipedia page. But, after Jenks dug in to the mystery of this seemingly forgotten king, a whole medieval world came to life. As it turns out, John II, perhaps better known as John the Good, sailed to England to turn himself in as a prisoner of war, abandoning his stunned French subjects to fend for themselves through the Dark Ages. Is he the worst king in history? Or, has he been unfairly lost to the annals of time? What Really Happened? </p><p><br></p><p>Guests: <strong>David Green </strong>(author/historian), <strong>Michael Jones</strong> (author/historian), <strong>Michael Pye</strong> (author/historian), <strong>Neil Murphy </strong>(author/historian), and <strong>Peter Hoskins </strong>(author/historian)</p>
