Earl Spencer’s latest bestselling history tome The White Ship: Conquest, Anarchy and the Wrecking of Henry I’s Dream recounts the dramatic sinking of the vessel following the King as he returned to England, carrying his son William when a drunken helmsman rammed the ship into rocks and only one person survived. The death of the heir prompted violent civil war for decades. The author of To Catch a King and Blenheim: Battle for Europe returns to Henley. Interviewed by Clare Mulley.
