Product Description

About the Author

Born in York and educated at Dulwich College, Noel Botham had a long and distinguised career as a national newspaper journalist before becoming a full-time author. He was a crime and parliamentary reporter and war correspondent covering several major conflicts before becoming an editor. Now a New York Times number 1 bestselling author, he has written more than 30 books and is published in more than 40 countries. His book The Murder of Princess Diana was an international bestseller and became a successful film. He has also featured in many major television documentaries. He lives with his wife, Lesley, in London and Hove. Together they own London's most famous Bohemian bar and restuarant, The French House, in Soho. Bruce Montague trained at RADA and achieved rapid leading man status in the theatre. In his early twenties he starred in a round the world tour with Vivien Leigh. He has appeared in over 300 television productions but is probably best known for his five-year run in the popular BBC sit-com Butterflies as Wendy Craig's secret lover, Leonard. More recently he has returned to the theatre, starring in Fiddler on the Roof as Topal at the Palladium, Oliver, (three years), and Phantom of the Opera, (two years). He has written numerous plays and muscials for the stage and BBC, and scripts for Hollywood. He lives in Brighton with his actress wife, Barbara Latham.

Do you remember a book many years ago called '1066 And All That'? Irreverent and funny but all based on fact. Well, this is irreverent, totally factual and written in an easily digestible way. Some of it is laugh-aloud ridiculous. It should be on everyone's coffee table or hanging in the toilet. It's the perfect present to give to practically anyone of any age. And you can browse anywhere within it and pick up incredibly useless but fascinating facts about anything connected with the Royals - and much else - since 1066.
It'll please little Johnny and Grandma Edna. And it will last for ever.

This book is littered with inaccurate information and outright lies. Had to ask for a refund. Avoid at all cost.

The recent monarchy was very interesting but when you discover they go to many era's that were brutal it loses the
interest. Unless you wish to study the Plantagent and other earlier monarchies then it is really boring, not to many the torture very explicit and not conducive to a good sleep. I deleted the book after reading these chapters

A bit of a fun read, not all the facts are completely accurate, would not recommend this for the serious student of the Royals and their history

This book was great fun to read; I really enjoyed it, but as a historian I was taken aback by the sheer volume of inaccuracies - not just one or two, but many. Some are so obvious that a schoolboy (or girl) would spot them. Read it for pleasure, but not to increase your historical knowledge.

I found the opening chapters quite interesting and sometimes amusing, but when I began to read statements that were totally wrong and misleading I was horrified. I did not expect it to be a work of scholarship, but I did expect as much accuracy as possible.

Full of tremendously interesting facts about Royalty and some quite risque, and although i have read a lot on this subject, there were facts that I hadn't heard about before I was really sorry when I finished this book, it was well written and easy to understand and well researched thanks to whoever wrote it:-)
