Description

This pocket-sized book covers 1,200 years of British royals, from King Egbert to Queen Elizabeth II. Containing hundreds of fascinating facts and figures about the monarchs and their reigns, the book also covers revolutions, beheadings, scandals, assassinations, marriages, plots, intrigues, imposters, and more marriages. Each royal has a special portrait, showing them in all their cartoon glory, while fact boxes reveal historical turning points, did-you-know details, and quotes from courtiers and historians.
