A reference on British royalty, from the legendary King Alfred the Great onwards, including the monarchies of England, Scotland, Wales and the United Kingdom over a thousand years. Portraits are woven into a history of division and eventual union of the British Isles -and even the royals we think most familiar are shown in a sometimes surprising light. This paperback, a revised and shortened version of The Mammoth Book of British Kings and Queens, includes biographies of the royals of recorded British history, plus a general overview of the semi-legendary kings and queens of pre-history and the Dark Ages.
