Format: Hardcover
I bought this book many years ago, and I still pick it up at least once a month. The book gives you the most important information of every king and queen who has ever ruled England or Scotland.
As I turn the pages, I can see that there is something interesting about every regent, and by the way; this book makes you realize that royal scandals are not a new invention.

Like reviewer Inger Watts, I bought this little volume years ago and find myself referring to it all the time. British history is divided by the reign of monarchs and this book brings perspective to the reigns. It certainly isn't everything you'll need to study the history of monarchy, far from it. But there are many comprehensive accounts in print... this is a facts-packed quick review, and as such is invaluable.
For more thorough accounts consider Antonia Fraser's "The Lives of the Kings & Queens of England" (also available as an excellent audiobook) and The Times' "Kings & Queens of the British Isles". The latter has excellent maps to illustrate historical events.

My daughters two children get this book out of the school library with such regularity that I thought I would buy it for them.
They love the pictures, the text is easy for them to read and they just love it......they quiz one another on what they have read...what a fun way to learn about the history of the Kings and Queens of the United Kingdom.
I am in favour of encouraging learning history in this way. It is good for school projects too.
I just hope they will share amicably.

I was looking for a small book to keep by me to refer to during reading. I read a lot of historical books, fiction and fact, and sometimes need to check which King/Queen is being referred to.

This little book is excellent and just the right size.
