    Licoricia of Winchester

    Licoricia of Winchester rose from obscurity to become the most successful female financier in early Plantagenet England. Royal favourite, widow, potentate and prisoner, her life spanned seven decades and was filled with dramatic highs and tragic lows. In this inspiring chronicle of an extraordinary woman, Rebecca Abrams tells the story of Licoricia and the Jews of medieval England, set against a backdrop of political unrest and rising antisemitism, opening a window onto a period of English history whose aftershocks linger to this day.
