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.
