Summary

Summary

The story of the kings and queens of England is long and fascinating. It begins with the early monarchs who were little more than tribal warlords, and moves down through the centuries to the present day and the court of Queen Elizabeth II. It is a story of treachery, lust, persecution, and faltering but unremitting progress, sometimes despite the monarchs themselves rather than because of them. This beautifully illustrated and informative volume contains over 100 full-color historical reproductions.
