"Kings and Queens of England and Britain" takes its readers on a journey from the Saxons in 802, through William The Conqueror right up to the current day monarch Queen Elizabeth II and the three heirs apparent.
It is an updated version of the second title in White on Black's A6 genre including 14 new portraits and extended Royal Household sections which arms its readers with highlights of each King or Queen's reign and also what sort of people we have had as Head of State through many invasions and battles, the execution of Charles I, two World Wars and much, much more.
You will find out who was the first English Monarch to have a proper portrait on his coins, who kept a "drunken Elephant", who was the first King to use a dressing gown, who had the most illegitimate children, who competed at Wimbledon, who is behind the "Royal Oak" pubs and who used their Royal Navy severance pay to fund the tackling of community issues. The book is crammed full of these and other interesting facts which gives the reader a fantastic oversight on the character of each monarch along with original full colour portraits. As is now tradition with the White on Black brand, GBP1 from each sale will be donated to The Prince's Trust.
