Summary, etc.:
The Kings & Queens of England offers elegant portraits of 59 English monarchs from Harold II to Henry VIII, and from Athelred the Unready to Elizabeth II. Each sovereign is concisely and memorably profiled and the impact of his or her rule on wider English, and indeed world history, clearly described and analyzed. For every king and queen there is a detailed timeline of key events, and the narrative is further amplified by quotations, feature boxes, panels of key biographical facts, and--last but not least--by 135 lavish full-color images.
