From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nigel Saul (born 1952[1]) is a British academic who was formerly the Head of the Department of History at Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL). He retired in 2015 and is now Emeritus Professor. He is recognised as one of the leading experts in the history of medieval England.[2]

Nigel Saul has written numerous books including Knights and Esquires, The Gloucestershire Gentry in the Fourteenth Century (Oxford, 1981), and The Oxford Illustrated History of Medieval England (Oxford, 1997). His major biography Richard II (Yale, 1997) was the product of ten years' work and was acclaimed by P. D. James as "unlikely to be surpassed in scholarship, comprehensiveness, or in the biographer's insight into his subject's character".[3] In 2011 he published a comprehensive survey of English chivalry, For Honour and Fame. Chivalry in England, 1066-1500 (Bodley Head, 2011). More recently he has written on the history of church monuments. His English Church Monuments in the Middle Ages: History and Representation (Oxford 2009) earned wide praise as a successful attempt to tackle the subject from a historical perspective. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and served as President of the Monumental Brass Society between 1995 and 2002.

Prof. Saul has served as Honorary President of the college's Conservative Future Society.
