1186 - England. Gilbert Foliot, the Bishop of London, has witnessed first-hand the terrifying and bloody civil wars that have ripped the country apart under the reign on King Henry II - a time in history so traumatic it became known as The Anarchy.

The greatest letter writer of the 12th century, Foilot writes of a man who has impacted history. Harold of Hereford, one of the nine founders of the Knights Templar, is a heroic survivor of the fearsome battles of the Crusader States and a loyal warrior in the cause of Empress Matilda.

During a time of ruthless brutality, greed and ambition, Harold carries the legacy of England's past, and its hopes for the future. This is his story, told in Foliot's letters.
