From the palaces of Istanbul to the blood-soaked fields of central Europe and the scorched coasts of north Africa, The Lion House pioneers a bold new style of eye-witness history to tell a true story of power at its most glittering, personal and perilous: Suleyman’s rise to become the most feared and powerful man of the sixteenth century.

The Lion House is not just the story of two civilisations in an existential duel and of one of the most consequential lives in world history. It is a tale of the timeless pull of power, dangerous to live with, deadly to live without.

We are delighted that author and historian Helen Carr will be joining Christopher de Bellaigue in conversation. Helen Carr is the author of The Red Prince which vividly brings to life the complex character of John Gaunt, the brother of the Black Prince.
