Kings and Queens of England: Lives and Reigns from the House of Wessex to the House of Windsor (Hardcover)
Historians and broadcasters Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan tell the real stories of the most powerful men and women in British history.
Kings & Queens explores the lives, loves, triumphs and disasters of a monarchy that is the envy of the world. Snow and MacMillan offer a unique insight into those born to rule, whether villains or heroes - from cruel King John and warrior-king Edward III, to our own Elizabeth II: dutiful, discreet and the longest-reigning queen in the world.
This is the story of modern civilization, through the lens of those who have ruled.
