Publisher's Summary

Kings and Queens of England is an entertaining account of the larger-than-life characters that have ruled England through the ages. It follows the fascinating history of monarchs from the first Saxon kings to the Windsors of the present day. Author Nigel Cawthorne paints vivid portraits of a mixed bunch of rulers ranging from the drunken and debauched merry monarch Charles II to the idealized domesticity and colonial ambition of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

    "Not what I expected"

    I have had this book on my shelf for 10 years but, being a lazy reader, thought I'd get somebody to read it to me. That turned out to be a mistake. I would question the choice of narrator who came across like an English teacher in a far flung outpost of the former empire teaching schoolkids about the history of our monarchy. It was clear that she was reading the book out loud, with often questionable pronunciation, rather than telling the great story it should've been. Not exactly her fault, as she had no choice over the material present, but it was conveyed as a dry list of facts rather than having life breathed into what ought to be a fantastic series of tales of our aristocratic dynasties. Sorry, but I wasn't really moved as I'd hoped to have been.
