Encompassing murder, civil war, adultery, usurpation, and madness, here is the essential guide to Britain's Kings and Queens, written with a lively wit and packed with useful facts and information

 

The tales of the various monarchs of Britain are some of the most interesting in the country’s vast history. From Henry VIII and his six wives and Edward VIII's abdication to some of the lesser-known and mythical monarchs such as King Arthur, this delightfully witty and informative guide takes you on a gallop through the history of Britain's monarchs. Stories begin with the legendary King Brutus, through the houses of Tudor and Stuart, and up to the Windsors, including the major monarchs of Scotland and Wales. Discover the sticky end that befell Edward II, the story of the teenage queen of England who reigned for less than a fortnight, and find out whether Macbeth really was a king of Scotland. Presented in an accessible, chronological format, this book is filled with fascinating and amusing facts that are guaranteed to entertain any history enthusiast.

Review:

"This is the sort of book everyone should have on their bookshelves, especially if you have children of a school age."  —Family History Monthly

"Puts the monarchy back at the centre of British history. An appealing read . . . a useful Christmas present."  —Gazette & Herald

"An essential guide to the British monarchy for those who should already know everything but don't. Written with a lively wit but crammed with factual information, this is the perfect way to mug up on your British history."  —The Oldie

"One way we remember history is by means of a good yarn . . . Flude's gem of a book works on this premise—that it is the human stories of our monarchs we remember—and he breaks them down into delightful bite-sized chunks."  —Family History Monthly
