The Lives of the Kings & Queens of EnglandBook - 1995
Here in a sweep of colorful episodes are the stories of England's monarchs, spanning ten great dynasties, from the invading Normans of 1066 to the House of Windsor today. Antonia Fraser introduces this pageant of royalty, and eight specialist contributors bring to life the complex characters of both well-loved figures such as Victoria and enigmatic, little-known sovereigns such as Richard III. Accompanying the text are 150 contemporary illustrations and handsome color drawings of the royal coats of arms, whose origins and significance are clearly explained. Richly illustrated and vividly narrated, this is a glittering celebration of almost one thousand years of English history, told through the lives and deeds of England's kings and queens.
