Descrizione
The perfect gift for lovers of history, the experienced and the novice, the serious and the silly. `Totally gripping - a factually accurate version of 1066 And All That'- Boris Johnson Gimson's Kings and Queens whirls us through the lives of our monarchs --- from 1066 and William the Conqueror right up to Queen Elizabeth II and the present-day - to tell a tale of bastardy, courage, conquest, brutality, vanity, vulgarity, corruption, anarchy, absenteeism, piety, nobility, divorce, execution, civil war, madness, magnificence, profligacy, frugality, philately, abdication, dutifulness, family breakdown and family recovery. Written in Andrew Gimson's inimitable style, and illustrated by Martin Rowson, Gimson's Kings and Queens is both a primer and a refresher for anyone who can't quite remember which were the good and bad Edwards or Henrys, or why so-and-so succeeded to the throne rather than his second cousin. Gimson's Kings and Queens is the most entertaining and instructive book on the English monarchy you will ever read. Gimson's Prime Ministers was released in March 2018.
