About this title
Coronations are very public occasions, typically seen as meticulously planned formal ceremonies where everything runs smoothly. But behind the scenes at Westminster Abbey lie extraordinary but true stories of mayhem, confusion and merriment. In this book we travel through one thousand years of England's history to reveal the real characters of its kings and queens. Packed with facts about how the service, traditions, and accessories have changed over the years, Crown, Orb and Sceptre provides both a compelling read and an irreverent guide to one of the most spectacular ceremonies in England's heritage.About the Author:
David Hilliam is the author of Kings, Queens, Bones and Bastards and Monarchs, Murders and Mistresses.
