These large format cards are great for my Year Three son who's doing lots of stuff on history: from the Tudors, Stuarts, etc. It's taught me a lot too as I haven't really paid much interest in this kind of thing for 30 years.

The cards themselves have a large picture of the monarch on the front and tells you which "house" they belong to. On the reverse you get the length of their reign, birth/death, etc.

Great value and educational. Result!

I have found this to be a handy set of cards. It covers kings and queens of Britain from Saxon times to present.
Though it states "All British Kings and Queens"on the box, it includes monarchs from the royal houses of Scotland and England but no Welsh kings have been included. So not quite all british kings and queens.
I have found it to be useful for quick reference when I want to place a particular monarch in time or find out who succeeded a particular king or queen.
Each card carries a glossy image of the monarch on one side. The reverse contains useful facts regarding birth, marriage and death of the king or queen and other interesting facts specific to the individual.
They are nice and colourful and great for quick a reference.

These are absolutely brilliant. Such a convenient reference tool. The card size is about the size of tarot cards. Just sits on the book shelf until you need it, which with the Shakespeare series Hollow Crown on TV recently, has been every day almost!

though i am pleased with this item, i did think the cards would have come in a box, which would have also kept them clean

I was confused when it did not come in a box, when I know it should be in one.

By Kit De Luca TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 29 Mar. 2014
Received this, no box to be seen. I liked the large format and felt this would be very useful to establish dates and facts to faces in my memory. However, I am disappointed to note typos. For instance, Alfred the Great card: 871-899. "In 786, he agreed with Guthrum, the Viking leader, to divide the country between them".
Either this is a typo, or he lived to over 100 years old. I think not. Unfortunately, I don't know how many more date errors there are, because I'm no history buff. I bought the cards to get me on the road to that! But now I don't trust what I'm reading. I also bought these from TheBookPeople rather than Amazon because they cost me just £1. I am now starting to wonder if this is the reason they were so affordable...
