From the Inside Flap:

Britain?s Royal Families is a unique reference book, offering complete genealogical details in one volume describing all the members of the royal houses of England, Scotland, and Great Britain, from 800 AD to the present. Look no
further for vital information relating to each monarch, and to every member of their immediate family, from parents to grandchildren.

When documents (which would have thrown the whole royal succession into question) describing George III?s secret marriage to Quakeress, Hannah Lightfoot, were seized in 1866 by the Attorney General, then-current learned opinion believed they were genuine. But they were placed into the Royal Archives at Windsor, and as late as 1910 the palace refused a would-be author who asked to see them. This is just one fascinating story of many in this delightful book.
Drawing on countless authorities, both ancient and contemporary, Alison Weir explores the royal family tree in unparalleled depth, tracing the heritage of today?s royal family.

About the Author:

Alison Weir’s books include Britain’s Royal Families; The Six Wives of Henry VIII; Children of England; Eleanor of Aquitaine; Henry VIII: King and Court; Mary, Queen of Scots; and most recently, Isabella.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 194 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. George III is alleged to have married secretly, on 17th April, 1759, a Quakeress called Hannah Lightfoot, daughter of a Wapping shoemaker, who is said to have borne him three children. Documents relating to the alleged marriage, bearing the Prince s signature, were impounded and examined in 1866 by the Attorney General. Learned opinion at the time leaned to the view that these documents were genuine. They were then placed in the Royal Archives at Windsor; in 1910, permission was refused a would-be author who asked to see them. If George III did make such a marriage when he was Prince of Wales, before the passing of the Royal Marriages Act in 1772, then his subsequent marriage to Queen Charlotte was bigamous, and every monarch of Britain since has been a usurper, the rightful heirs of George III being his children by Hannah Lightfoot, if they ever existed - From Britain s Royal Families. Britain s Royal Families is a unique reference book. It provides, for the first time in one volume, complete genealogical details of all members of the royal houses of England, Scotland and Great Britain - from 800AD to the present. Here is the vital biographical information relating not only to each monarch, but also to every member of their immediate family, from parents to grandchildren. Drawing on countless authorities, both ancient and modern, Alison Weir explores the royal family tree in unprecedented depth and provides a comprehensive guide to the heritage of today s royal family.
