For more than 1,000 years the British monarchy has dramatically shaped national and international history.

But whether they have abused their power or used it for good, each monarch has played a part in the rich tapestry of British history, coping with both international and civil wars, rebellions and criticism. The Kings and Queens of Britain introduces this fascinating thousand-year history, providing rich biographical detail of Britain's remarkable monarchs.

The ability to change lives and fortunes is a hallmark of the long history of the British monarchy. The lure of its power and prestige was the focus of generations of backroom and bedroom politics and international intrigue. Its history includes wars between nations, between fathers and sons, and between brothers, cousins, and rank outsiders. Over the centuries, the role of the kings and queens of the dominion has changed with the times, sometimes peacefully, sometimes violently, but the British monarchy's ability to adapt to an evolving society marks it as one of the most successful on earth. While modern Great Britain now encompasses England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the current monarchy has its origins in the ancient rulers of England. This edition offers an overview of the rise and rule of the British Monarchy, detailing the lives of the royal family throughout history, how they came to power, how they lost or relinquished power, and their role in modern society.
