This is History: A Dynasty to Die For, Hit History Podcast from Sony Music Entertainment is Back for Fifth Season

A medieval tale dripping with forbidden love, loose-cannon barons and murderous revenge returns July 9th


 Sony Music Entertainment’s hit podcast This is History, hosted by best-selling author, presenter and historian Dan Jones, returns for its fifth and most brutal season yet. 

It’s 1306 and, no matter how many wars waged against him, King of Scotland Robert the Bruce’s invincibility is proving to be a thorn in the Plantagenet dynasty’s side. Desperate to gain control of the Highlands, 68 year old Edward I marches north to put the Scots in their place once and for all…only to promptly die of dysentery.  

His heir, aptly named Edward, mourns the loss of his father by readmitting his exiled lover Piers Gaveston to England, far more interested in rekindling their passionate romance than ruling his tumultuous Kingdom. 

As all the forces in the kingdom strive to keep Piers and Edward apart, their relationship causes momentous shifts in English politics. From Edward’s ambitious, violent cousin, Thomas of Lancaster, to his long-suffering, canny wife, Isabella of France, a power-struggle unlike anything the Middle Ages has ever seen is about to begin. 

In a bloody narrative that would make a Tarantino film pale in comparison, Season 5 of This is History catapults its listeners towards an unsolved murder mystery that still leaves historians asking ‘whodunnit’. 

To hear this wild story from the very beginning, the first four seasons are available wherever you get your podcasts.

Episodes available weekly from Tuesday July 9th
