John's claim to the English throne is weak and the French king demands his abdication. There follows a dizzying change of alliances, a Papal excommunication and the final poisoning of John by a monk. Throughout, "The Bastard," Richard Lionheart's son, delivers a sardonic commentary on nobility, self-interest and English sovereignty.
