So I am a huge fan of alternate history and historic fiction, and as such, absolutely devour your works with great relish, particularly the Uhtred sage. Thus my big question - is there a foreseen end to the series? I live in dread that some terrible circumstance might remove you from this mortal coil and leave us dangling in cliffhanger hell. I realize this is entirely selfish, but after all, this series has been absolutely delightful in its quality, intrigue, pretty much everything. While it may not define my life, whilst reading the series, I am consumed by it.
Good thing I only buy the hardcover copies, or I would be needing a new set of each by now Trust me I live in dread that some terrible circumstance might remove me from this mortal coil! That can't be right? I wanted to ask about your "Sharpe Heavy Cavalry sword. Where did you get it? It was quite a find!

And do you have any other cool Napoleonic Memorabilia? Dragoons, technically, were mounted infantry. They rarely dismounted in battle, but certainly did so when they were on vedette duty — which was outpost work. I think the point being made was that the Imperial Guard was virtually a self-contained army corps in its own right, and thus contained infantry, cavalry and artillery. I bought it years ago — too many to remember — in London. My question is, will you be pushing to offer the Last Kingdom series in leather bound versions?
Or are they available as leather through someone? As good as they are it would be nice to have leather bound books to have on a coffee table to read. Or possibly a limited edition perhaps different than the hardcover possibly autographed. I would love them in a nice leather edition, thanks. I am not aware of plans for a leather bound edition Maybe once the series is finished? I can see its been awhile since you have visited our friend Starbuck and was wondering if there are any plans to pick up on that series again. I realize you have been busy with Uhtred - looking forward to the War of the Wolf.
Also, I am nearing the end of the Sharpe series I'm afraid I am going to be jonesing. We absolutely love love your Saxon Chronicles and the tale of Uhtred of Bebbanburg- Thank you so much for this wonderful gift. We love to turn off the TV and awful news of the day and lose ourselves in this story. We also were enthralled with your re-telling of Arthur through the eyes of Derfel. I should note here that we have the audiobook versions so that we can 'read' as we drive.
I don't know if you have any say in who reads your books for Audible, but the reader for many of the books has been Jonathan Keeble- and he is wonderful. We would love to have him as a reader for all of your books! Thank you again for the joy you bring in your story telling! I do not have any input into choosing narrators of the audio books - but I am happy to pass along your message! I love all of your books but somewhat disappointed we'll see no more of Thomas of Hookton. Nevertheless, I can't wait until 2 Oct to find out what mischief Uhtred will be getting into. My question; can you list out your best selling series in order of sales?
I think it maybe the Sharpe series although with the program, I can see the Last Kingdom doing quite well. I love your books. I have devoured several series and your work has rekindled an interest in history that I had long forgotten I had. However, I am conscious that across your wide range of books, the central character is always male. This saddens me, because there have been some great, influential and interesting women in history and that's just in the non-fiction section! Admittedly feisty women in history weren't the norm, but then the likes of Sharpe, Uhtred and Derfel weren't run-of-the mill personalities either.
I would therefore like to know if you would ever consider putting a female character at the centre of one of your stories in the future? I have considered it, and even done a lot of research into that particular woman and her world, but will I write it and her?
A long life and a blissfully happy marriage has convinced me that women see the world differently to mere men. We write best I think when we write what we know about and women, much as I love them, are something of a mystery. In my defence I do try to make my female characters strong! A brownie point, please? I just had a few questions about Sigtryggr. If we mix the historical figure of Sithric Caech and the fictional Sigtryggr that you've created, is it safe to assume that Sigtryggr and Ragnall in the books are either the sons of the young Ivar who attempts to attack Uhtred at the end of "Lords of the North"?
What year are we currently in at the end of "Flamebearer"? I'm currently reading the book for a second time in preperation for the release of "War of the Wolf" and upon my first reading took Uhtred's final interaction with Aethelflaed to mean that the book is set in , as the real Aethelflaed died in that year. Upon my second reading, I realized that Uhtred simply states that he never sees her again and there is no real indication that she dies soon after thier meeting. Eiglaf had two young sons who would be in their early thirtys at this point in the storyline, or is the fact that he is named Einar Eiglafson and both are named after a color just a coincidence?
If not, do you think we'll see the decendants of long dead charachters make a return, such as Eiglaf of Svien of the White Horse? Also, on a totally unrelated topic, do you think Sharpe would have gotten along with Sgt Scammell? Thank you for writing such fabulous and engaging novels - ranging from the Sharpe series, to the Arthur series, to Uhtred and I also enjoyed the Rebel series and Azincourt, as well as the Fort. My father and I are very devoted fans of much of your writing, so much so that it has very easily become something we bond over, as we can spend hours talking about the little details and history surrounding Uhtred of Bebbanburg, though he has definitely dwelled deeper into your content than I have.
Of all the warriors Uhtred has fought, I feel that Cnut has become the most important of the series, as he is the only character who has nearly killed Uhtred, and he was the only character Uhtred fully expected to lose to in a fight, with the exception of Steapa. My English is really bad, Sorry. I'm curious about it, how it goes on with Uhtred. I know so many people initiate their first messages with you by offering thanks for your work. I would like to do the same. I truly do love what you've written. This is mentioned in a lot of your writing.
Where did you get the inspiration for it? What meaning does it have to You? However, our medieval ancestors thoroughly believed in fate and the phrase comes from an Anglo Saxon poem, The Wanderer, which sums up that belief very neatly. Fantastic news that the next Uhtred book is coming out later this year. Just in time for my 50th birthday a few days later. Apologies if I've missed it in the previous books, have you any plans to include the Weymouth Vikings in the tales?

Sounds like the sort of incident our hero may have been involved with, or maybe he would have tried to prevent it? It has been interesting to read fan comments in various chat rooms regarding TV Uhtred. Of course, there are many book fans participating in these debates who have never been happy with the casting of Dreymon as Uhtred because he doesn't at all fit your description of him in the books.
Another vein of recent debate is Uhtred's season 3 look. A number of official photos of cast in costume have been released, but none of them include Uhtred. Some folks have discovered photos during down time on the set of Uhtred with his hair sheered off, and that has upset an entire fan base. Some are clinging to the hope that extensions will be profusely used. Of course, no one really knows yet what Uhtred will look like in season 3, but you might be able to settle the "hair debate. If so, it's going to create a lot of flack from fans.
Two for the price of one. My only complaint is that in Episode 7 of the new series coming in the autumn he kills a character called Beornheard — does the man have no gratitude? I've often pondered on the similarities between Uhtred and Derfel Cadarn, and the similarites between Alfred of Wessex and Arthur of Dumnonia, as well as their differences.
In your opinion, if Derfel was transported to 9th century Britain, would he have liked Alfred? Would he have been as successful as Uhtred in fighting the Danes? Similarly, if Uhtred was in 5th century Britain, would he like Arthur? Would he have been more antagonistic towards Mordred?
And if Arthur had to defend against invading Danes, would he have been as successful in protecting Britain as Alfred was? Would Arthur have succeeded against the Danes? Alfred did the same, only the outcome was different — and his successors established an English state. Beyond that the comparisons are really impossible. Probably more than Uhtred did! I would like to thank you for giving me the pleasure of reading back. I devoured the 10 books of the Uthred Saga in about 4 months and can hardly wait for band I want you, unlike others, do not ask when it's finally going on, but ask if you're still planning to write stories that tell Uhtred's life in between?
I cannot wait for the next book in a series but devastated when that series ends. I have been seriously ill over the winter and fear I will not get to read the finale of Uhtred's wonderful adventures. No publication last year, dare we hope for one this year? If so I will try and keep going. The next book of the series is written! I find all your books wonderful and am very pleased to hear that Uhtred's adventures will continue. I appreciate you are a very busy man but will Starbuck be seeing the war through to a conclusion?
Have always been a fan of yours and having just finished the grail quest It was the death of a Robbie Douglas a death I did not expect that I found myself wondering what is your process for killing a character off? I remember reading you regretted killing Hakeswell off. I never decide anything before writing. I often regret them, but leave them in! My question is regarding Simmerson, when you wrote the character did you every think or base him on the character or the style of TT , Terry Thomas?
I suspect I'm one of your younger readers, considering I started reading the books earlier than would be regarded normal 19 and I first read 'The Last Kingdom' at 12 , so I suppose you could say that I've grown up with Uhtred. The series, along with many of your other works, has inspired a lot of my own interest in writing and by proxy acting, two of the paths I'm now trying to pursue. So for that I'd just like to say I'm grateful.
I have a couple of quick questions and would love to hear from you. Now my first question is a bit of an odd one, but I've always been curious about Eadith: At this point post 'The Flame Bearer' , he's been with her for as many books and almost as much time seemingly as anyone else, and yet she's still seldom mentioned. I understand that in earlier books she may not have been a fully-fledged character in your plans, but by now she is a close companion of Uhtred's and yet seemingly remains relegated to second tier in his affections.
I suppose I'm just curious as to why? Secondly, more brief this one Uhtred and Cnut fighting each other in their prime in a fair fight: I would assume Uhtred based on his victory as an old man by relative standards , but he used his ingenuity rather than ability to defeat Cnut on that occasion.
Finally, as a writer myself don't worry I'm not going to send you a screenplay! Did you know the general shape for the whole arc before you began, or does each story build mostly off what has come before? I know that I've asked more than my fair share, but as I say, I've had so many questions and only just discovered whilst sat re-watching season 2 on Netflix that the option to contact you was available. I hope to hear from you soon, and in the meantime: I hope Uhtred and co have many more adventures ahead!
I do have inklings of what might be ahead but beyond that I leave it to the imagination as a book gets written. Probably the wrong way to do it, but there you go! I have read all 10 books in the series.
Also just read Fools and Mortals. As someone who taught Shakespeare for 32 years, I loved your take on his personality and your insight into the living theatre of the day a concept hard for students to imagine. I am working on the 11th book of The Last Kingdom series now. I'm working my way through Uhtred's story, trying to catch up with the TV series before it comes back, and puzzling over Sharpe's father in the meantime. I believe I have it: Major Patrick Ferguson, inventor of the breech-loading rifle. Now that we know season 3 of TLK is really happening, and you'll be making a cameo appearance, can you give us a hint as to in which episode you will be appearing?
With makeup artists being as good as they are, I surely wouldn't want to miss your appearance as using eyeglasses to help identify you will obviously not be of much assistance! If you've already been filmed, I imagine the experience was quite a hoot for you and I'm hoping Uhtred's desired insult was a doozy!
If so, were you allowed a pithy retort? I appear unless I end on the cutting room floor in episode 7. It was, indeed, a hoot. I have always been interested in the Roman period, and based on what I've read, it seems like the Roman heavy infantry were the pinnacle of close combat warfare. With large shields, short stabbing swords, heavy armor, organization, and discipline, they would set the standard for all that came after. Granted, that the Romans lost plenty of battles, but I'm sure they won abundantly more, so that it was something of a shock when they lost.
Compared to Uhtred, leading a couple thousand men into battle, and with only a few hundred of those well armed, armored, and trained, the commander of a couple of Roman cohorts would be at an almost insurmountable advantage. Mated with the quality of troops, to have a logistical system in place so they are capable of operating year round far from home, it must seem like a race of giants to Alfred's Wessex. I know you don't want any ideas for books, but I personally would love to read a few books of your that covered this topic. I have all 10 of the Saxon Chronicles Or will there be?
Hi, I can't believe that Flame Bearer is the end of Uhtred! When can I look for the next step? I love this series and have seen the 2 available seasons on Netflix and read all the Saxon Tales at least twice! I have now read all 10 Saxon novels. Uhtred has retaken Bebbanberg, is this now the end of his story?? And Season 3 of the tv series is currently being filmed. I have a specific question about one of your Uhtred books. Is this a nod to JRR Tolkien? I know he based his creations largely on his studies of the Dark Age Saxons so maybe it was really called that.
My son and I were fortunate enough to attend your talk in in Ely. I think the rumour mill was already in full swing when we did and even though we were there to listen to you speak on Fools and Mortals, the prospect of an eleventh Uhtred book was great news. You have already said that you are currently working on book 11, will you be visiting the UK this year to promote it? If yes, do you have any dates in mind and venues? I believe the book will be published on October 4 th so I suspect it will be around that time. Don't know the venues yet, but once we know it will be posted to the homepage of this website.
Firstly can I thank you for all of your wonderful books and characters? Having read at least once every book you have written. I do have a question though, will Nate Starbuck ever march again? The historical note in the last book said he would but he hasn't so far. And I view them as an extension of the Sharpe books particularly with his son in them - a wonderful touch.
My girlfriend by the way laughs at me because she thinks much of my morality and my attitude to religion and authority may be led by Sharpe, Uhtred and others. Anyway, all the best and thank you so much for all the hours and hours of pleasure your books have given me over the last 25 years. Love your books and have reading them as they are released ever since the Sharp novels, however the Starbuck Chronicles finishes in the middle of nowhere and I wanted to ask if you were going to write any more as there is still quite a bit of Civil War left.
I'm going to make a prediction but it isn't one I like. Here is why I think so. First, they have asked you to make a cameo appearance. Why would they do that when they are only just over half-way through this series of books? Second, I think Stephen Butchard has done an excellent job writing the scripts for TLK, but I also think he wrote himself into a bit of a corner. The relationship between Uhtred and Alfred has been presented so powerfully, who is going to fill that void after Alfred dies? There isn't another character they can pull from that had such an important impact on Uhtred's life.
Readers, of course, are still very interested in what goes on with Uhtred after Alfred, but how does the TV show replace that dynamic relationship? Third, because I like the way the show has been written, I did a little research on Stephen Butchard to find out what other projects he has been involved with. On his CV it is listed that season 3 will have 10 episodes instead of the usual 8.
In conjunction with the two thoughts above, I think the extra two episodes are going to finish Uhtred's story as far as the TV series is concerned by pulling out a few events from successive books and placing them after book 6. It would neatly wrap up the TV version of Uhtred's life by giving the viewers what they would want: Uhtred offs his uncle and finally reclaims Bebbanburg.
I will be greatly disappointed if season 3 is the last of TLK, but things are just a bit too coincidental for my liking. In the world of TV entertainment, viewers have often been greatly disappointed when a great series ends before its time. Uhtred is a very interesting character to read about, and certainly one interesting enough to watch since his character has been written so well by Mr. Butchard and excellently portrayed by Alexander Dreymon. You might be right, you might not be! I am a big fan of your books, especially the Sharpe series. I read through the collection in record time and fell in love with the way you develop your characters, the way you create lovable rogues is truly impressive.
Having finished Sharpe I read most of your other books before discovering Starbucks Chronicles and I was hooked, I understand that you are currently writing the Saxon series and that clashing with writing Sharpe and Starbuck at the same time meant Starbuck had to be put on hold, but I am just curious that once you have finished with Uhtreds story, will it be possible for us to see Starbuck march again?
Thank you for all your work and your time. I love the characters in the books and especially Uhtred, the main character. I was wondering if there would be a book following the Flame Bearer? If that is the case, when will it be available? I know Uhtred is now an old man but his son would also make a wonderful character for a follow up.
When will the 11th book in the Saxon Chronicles be release? Have all ten books and looking forward to the next one. I was wondering, reading a response to a previous question, whether the wife Uhtred speaks of when he is old, frail and retelling his story, is in fact Mildrith. They would still be married as you never mention them as being divorced. Is this a guess too far? Thank you for answering the question regarding Uhtred's age when he finally takes back Bebbanburg. That could cover a lot of years since in the books anyone over 40 is considered old.
I suppose readers get wound up with characters, especially ones that have had more than their share of hard knocks. All Uhtred really wanted was to go home, eh? How long did it take him to achieve his dream? I guess we'll never know. Having such long stretches between seasons, as well as leaving viewers hanging, is really not the way to gain and retain viewers. While the TV series alters your story quite a bit, it is still a gem of a TV series and has prompted many people to read all of the books in the series for a more in-depth look at the myriad of interesting characters and events.
I forgot to mention that I have really enjoyed the humor in the books. Some situations are not very PC in today's world so I suppose I shouldn't have been laughing out loud, but I did anyway. One of my favorite interactions between Uhtred and Finan I forget which book and the five things that keep a man happy. Love the interaction between those two characters. Your Saxon chronicle books are so good, I have read them multiple times. The Flamebearer was even better - you are getting more skillful. When is the next one going to be available? Your book was good, but your Saxon books are by far your greatest gold mine for sheer reading entertainment.
I have not yet read the tenth book in the Last Kingdom series Otherwise I will save 10 for a special occasion. When will the next release of the last kingdom be released? Uhtred' s story is far from complete When will you release a new book in the Saxon Chronicles? I really have enjoyed reading this series. I am a huge fan of your writing and especially the Last Kingdom Series. Uhtred is one of my favourite characters, however I have also become a big fan of his Irish companion and friend Finan, and I was wondering whether you would be writing anything from his point of view, why he was exiled in more detail.
Or more about his life before his exile? I have really enjoyed reading The Last Kingdom series and look forward to reading book I do, however, have a question. Although that isn't a big issue for me, I would like to know, how old Uhtred is, in your mind, when he finally takes back Bebbanburg in book When I read books and try to keep track, it appears they only cover about seven years of Uhtred's life , which would put him in his early 50s, but I have no real idea.
She was my favourite of Uhtred's ladies. I'm sure you get this kind of message all the time but will we be reading more of Uhtred anytime soon? Also you put a line in the book when Uhtred finds Berg and said that he doesn't know but he's just completed Alfred's dream of England. What did you mean by Berg is the completion of England?
I just finished The Flamebearer today and absolutely love the Uhtred series. The church attracted wealth and wealth begets greed, and it also attracted ambitious and clever men who could not rise in the civil hierarchy which was dominated by an aristocracy but could rise within the ranks of the church.
That went on for centuries and, for all I know, still goes on. But the church also attracted men and women of humility, piety and charity, and I try to offer you some of those as well as the more colourful rogues. First, I want to thank you for your wonderful books. Uhtred my favorite is such a wonderfully flawed, noble character!
Speaking of wonderfully flawed, noble characters - have you considered writing anything about Boudicca? My daughter and I both deeply admire her. As is typical of the period, we have only the brief accounts by Tacitus and Cassius Dio as somewhat contemporaneous sources. Your dedication to research and historical accuracy in your writing is unparalleled. I'm sure it could be an interesting story, but I've too many other things on my list at the moment!
I just wanted to write a quick thank you for all the amazing books you have produced. The first book I read of yours was Agincourt, I was loaned the book by my Grandmother who recently passed. Since then, I came to love the Uhtred series, reading them all back-to-back. I then proceeded to read the Arthur books. I was also thrilled to see Uhtred make it onto our TV screens, but alas I can not explain to my brother how much better the books are- not that it hasn't brought me immense pleasure to see Uhtred in the flesh, and also to watch the series.
I saw on a recent reply of yours that you have no objection to games, I wonder if you have ever played Crusader Kings 2 by Paradox Interactive? I greatly look forward to finishing the Sharpe series, but more importantly- reading the new Uhtred book which I hope comes out this year above all things else. It is my last desire to place any sense of pressure on you as you write the novel, but I beg you to end my misery by announcing a release date soon: I believe I have a copy of every one published, mostly in paperback, I have watched and enjoyed the productions of Sharpe and of the last Kingdom.
I am a fan. And I also was born in Essex.
Enough of the flattery, sincere though it is. My reason for contacting you is concerning the Oriflamme and its fate. I appreciate that there were many produced, that some were destroyed, but also surely some were captured, What happened to them? I have tried to find out bit apart from some reference to one being destroyed in the French Revolution can find no reference to any still in existence.
So I write to you, on whom I place the responsibility for my curiosity, in the hope that you will be able to spare the time to satisfy it. In any event let me pass on my sincere thanks for conjuring up Sharpe, Harper, Thomas and Uhtred as well as all the other memorable characters you have created. I know of at least two that were captured — I assume they vanished into the English court?

Since I first read "The last Kingdom", I am a big fan of your work, especially of the Saxon stories and the Sharpe books. I am working on maps and chronologies of anglo-saxon history and therefore I was very glad, how historical well researched your books are. This is also the reason, why I wanted to locate your novels in my timeline of anglo-saxon history.
But, especially in the last novels, I had some trouble locating the novels exactly. Would it be possible to help me locate your novels exactly and complete this list? Especially with the last three books I had some trouble in locating them exactly, because they have also fictional events in them. Thank you very much for answering my questions. I hope my English wasn't to bad, as I am from Switzerland. I would also like to thank you for writing this wonderful books and enriching my Bookshelf with great works. I am looking forward for the 11th book of the Saxon stories in October.
Is it at all likely that we'll get another Sharpe novel before you've finished the last of Uhtred's saga? I am an avid reader of your books and absolutely love the character Uhtred of Bebbanburg but I am also a big lover of the total war games, with the incoming release of Total War Saga: Kings of Britannia I wonder if Uhtred might have either a game of his own at some point or have a cameo in this new game that takes place during the rule of Alfred?
I don't object to video games - but I know nothing of developing them so it's up to someone else to do it! Thank you so much for sharing your extraordinary gifts with the world! Why would Uhtred marry such a woman?! I hope you will explain it soon because it seems so out of character.
I'd like to say that I greatly admire, among other characters, Cnut Ranulfson. He is Uhtred's most dangerous, competent and sort of noble opponent, who is basically sort of Uhtred on the other side. I'd like to know, whether you based him on any particular historical figure and whether there is a chance that we will get to meet his son.
Love your books; they have stolen hours and hours away from many nights sleep and they were well worth it! I was having a conversation with family the other day and we were discussing the English classes from school which alleged that the colour of curtains or other things of that nature set a particular tone. I wondered whether you ever deliberately write things of that nature into your books and when young people learn about Bernard Cornwell's books what will be the frequent methods you use to build mood into your stories?
Also, if the answer above would be yes, what colour curtains would Uhtred, Sharpe or Derfel have assuming they had a sudden urge to have them! Good Lord, I have no idea! That would be a bit limiting. It never appeared in print. Just finished The Flame Bearer and have to say thank you for such an enjoyable series of books. Any idea when the 11th will be published and have you heard anything about The Last Kingdom Series 3?
I recently discovered the tv series and then the book series. After reading the 10th novel, I'm wondering if there will be any more books or was that the last we will see of Uhtred?? Hi, I'm a big fan from Brazil and I would like to know how many books will have the saga of Uhtred? My question is; is there a book following number Just wondering if you have more books in the pipeline to follow the Flame Bearer.
I have found these really riveting and true to life as I would imagine it , and really want to know if Utred finally retakes Bebbanburgh. I hope you had a great new year, and hope it will be a good year for you! I wanted to ask you in regards to Saxon Chronicles, I've got the word that the 11th book is indeed coming, but I am wondering if it will be the last. Hopefully not, as according to my calculations, Uhtred is 60 and, since he was born in AD, the 10th book was set in AD.
I believe there is enough material for at least four more books. Do you plan on doing something like this in order to finish the saga? So yes, more to come! So now that Fools and Mortals is done, are you probably going to focus on Uhtred and nothing else until his story is finished? Many of the one-off books have left me yearning for follow up like The Gallows Thief.
My hope is that there will be a third series produced and Uhtred will return on screen. Can you provide hope for the New Year? I love reading all your books and have enjoyed many hours of pleasure at your hand, so thank you. After reading the Last Kingdom series I got into the BBC adaption and I was intrigued by the actors chosen to play your beloved characters. Will the series be renewed for a 3rd season? I just have to take a moment to praise you for what I've read so far. I started with the Last Kingdom series can't wait for the next installments , moved on to the Warlord Chronicles these are my favorite so far , and now am working my way through The Grail Quest.
Without doubt,your trilogy of Arthur are the finest books I have ever read and deserve to grace the big screen. So, I must know when will there be another book in the series? I need to know if he will obtain Bebbanburg! I love you work. Your Sharpe series was the first series of books I tackled reading. I was thirteen years old.
I have now completed all of the Saxon Tales, and was wondering if you planned on finishing this series, with the retaking of Bebbanburg. I am a huge fan of both the Warlord and Saxon Stories series; for me, the best things about the books are the characters and the attention to historical detail. When I came to watch the Last Kingdom, I was very impressed with the former, with the casting being excellent across the board. Similarly, a great deal of effort had obviously been made with regard to historical details such as the use of languages similar to Old Norse on the soundtrack.
This made the depiction of the Saxon shields stand out even more - shield walls play such a big part in Uhtred's story that the decision to portray the Saxons with rectangular and kite shields seemed odd. The only reason I could think for this was to provide viewers with an easy visual differentiation between Vikings and Saxons during the battle scenes. As both a writer and a military historian, where do you stand on the balance between aesthetics and accuracy when your works are transferred to the screen?
One this that has interested me as a follower of medieval history and ancient history is the heights of people in the past. Uhtred is often mentioned as being very tall and his sidekick Finan is described as more slight and I don't remember anything about Alfred's height. I was wondering how tall you envisaged each of the three. If their heights are mentioned in the book, I apologise,.
