The Scotsman obituary does not do justice to the range of his work.
"The Steel Bonnets" is a first rate factual account of the historical

As far as I could tell, no mention was made of either Isabel of
England, or her children in this account, even though there was a list
provided of the children of Emperor Frederick II.
Be that as it may, the following sources were listed as the
bibliography for Emperor Frederick II.
