The father-of-seven went on: "It's the true story of William the Conqueror's royal sons fighting one another for control of England and Normandy, with their sons, grandsons and courageous granddaughter ('the Empress') taking this real life game of thrones into the next generation and beyond.

"This medieval struggle for power is most deeply [affected] by THE WHITE SHIP, the Medieval TITANIC, which sank 900 years ago, altering the course of History forever. The book is published in the USA on 19 October. #thewhiteship."
