Format: Paperback
I've been looking for a VERY long time for a book that tells a bit more about British Kings than the fact that Henry VIII had 6 wives and that Elizabeth I her teeth were rotting, yet is well readable for somebody who isn't a historian himself. And I've found it! This book tells everything there is to know, and also tells the story in a way that doesn't make you fall asleep. There's loads of maps and charts that make themselves quickly understood.
I could go on for hours, I guess. Buy it! It's a must for the real Anglofile!

By Ben Nicholson on 5 April 2010
Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book, it's very informative and gives all the information you need to know about British Kings and Queens (Plus More). It starts on some of the pre-roman leaders that we/they know about trying to destingress between myth and fact, then going on to the Roman emporer's and governers that ruled the country (part off). Then it goes on to all the small kingdoms from the SW corner of England and wales to the Islands of Scotland. Then gradually going on to the the bigger kingdoms and the uniting of the crowns to become Great Britain then the UK. These plenty of information, on all the monarchs, as well as sites with royal connections, royal family tree's with the connection's between them all (not just the traditional look, a very comprihensive one) and a full (as full as historians/fact know) list of all the monarchs ( and roman emporers and governers of britain) of the UK, with dates and notes. It also shows the Kings, Queens, Prince's, Duke's, leaders etc of other places, fron Norway to Anjou and France to Hanover for example.
This book has everything you need to know in it. A must have and if I could give it more stars I would.

Love the completeness of this book, and if anything really makes you want to know more, well you can take it from there.
Mike Ashley is a very easy to read author

The book provides a great overview of the reign of all the kings and queens of Britain as well as the individual home nations. It's a great book if your the kind of person who likes to know a little bit about everything. I did however find the book a little hard to navigate at times.

I thought this was a con, this fine book for just a penny. It is a fund of information for those who float in that space between, history lover and historian, and supplies an amazing amount of information. Full of Kings Lists and ancient family trees, the book also provides a potted history of all that happened in Britain. My only complaint is that I assume most of the names in the various lists that take the reader through The Dark Ages and beyond, are early Welsh versions of original Celt; I should have liked to have had this confirmed; not being an expert in either of those Languages. I was looking for this book and prepared to pay the full price; it is well worth that and a credit to the author.

My partner's original book was so well used and looking tatty, I bought this as a replacement. Although used, it is in excellent condition and was money well spent. Excellent books filled with loads of factual information.
