Hundreds of incredible true facts and anecdotes from England's amazing history
Did you know that Mary Queen of Scots was a mighty 5' 11" tall? Her cousin Elizabeth I, by contrast, was a miniscule 5' 4".
Even with the heaviest bows, an English archer could fire six arrows a minute—or up to 54,000 arrows a minute at Agincourt.
Charles I was once dug up by George III’s doctor; the medical man kept a piece of Charles's spine and beard as a souvenir.
This book contains hundreds of "strange but true" facts and anecdotes about English history. Arranged into a miniature history of England, and with bizarre and hilarious true tales for every era, it will interest, surprise, and delight readers everywhere.
