"Stand down, Indiana Jones: these two historians say the holy grail has been discovered . . . A ride rich in historical detail" (Publishers Weekly). Recently discovered parchments in the Egyptian University of Al-Azhar have finally made it possible to identify where the Holy Grail has been kept for the past one thousand years. Their discovery led Margarita Torres Sevilla and Jose Miguel Ortega del Rio on a three-year investigation as they traced the Grail's journey across the globe and discovered its final resting place in the Basilica of San Isidoro in LeOn, Spain. Translated by Rosie Marteau, this is the definitive guide to one of history's most sought-after treasures, the object of both Arthurian myth and Christian legend. Kings of the Grail presents new historical and scientific facts that have come to light, unraveling the mystery that has surrounded the Holy Grail and taking the reader on a compelling and thought-provoking journey back through time. "The writers make a convincing case . . . This book is a fascinating look at a mystery which has caught the Western imagination via books, poems and movies." -The Historical Novels Review "An academic expose on the famed cup of Christ. Torres Sevilla and Ortega del Rio claim to have proven the identity of the true grail, the cup with which Jesus Christ and his Apostles shared wine at the Last Supper . . . [An] intriguing glimpse at one of Christianity's great treasures." -Kirkus Reviews
