What a joke!,
This review is from: British History Ruler, 1 side Kings & Queens 1 side cms
No way would I buy this piece of rubbish. It's called British History Ruler, but it's a very poor attempt at a record of an ENGLISH history ruler. It was on my Recommended for you list - "Recommended because you said you owned Pyrex Glass Bowl, 1.0L" I'm off to work that one out!
As to the ruler itself - 1017-1066 Danish Rule? And prior to that, 613-1017 Division into Kingdoms? What a cop-out! The House of Wessex, including Athelstan and his descendants, don't qualify (as there isn't enough room to squeeze them in!)!
And what happened to the rulers of an independant Wales, and an independant scotland before they took over the 'British' crown?

Danes were kings from 1016 through 1042. This is pretty handy for kids learning history at home, as they do not appear to do it at school. Shame people cannot accept it for what it is - Kings and Queens with handy dates, a great starter for kids. It's called a British ruler and that is what is it. If it had everything on it it wouldn't be a 12" ruler and would not be a handy tool.

I think your comment itself is a joke. I agree with Mrs C J Jackson. My 7 year old son finds it very useful. Its good for a beginner. I find the idea very innovative as well. Rulers on a ruler! I think you are just trying to show off your knowledge, if it is correct.
