About this deal

In early 1998, the Top Ten series was launched with two titles written by Terry, Top Ten Shakespeare Stories and Top Ten Greek Legends. Since the history of England is so broad and deep, it is hard to get a handle on it in its totality . British Kings and Queens takes an overall look at the British monarchy, explaining what a monarchy is, how it works and who gets to sit on the throne.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned; never did I find the material dry or boring - definitely recommended!This title continues through to HM Queen Elizabeth II and then to Charles III, ‘ the oldest new monarch ever‘ Our tracking of the royal timeline is enabled through the guidance of Caw, a crow. p>In this book you’ll discover the real lives of our kings and queens from William the Conqueror to King Charles III. I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic! The absurdly long reign of Victoria presided over the epoch of the peak in reach of the British Empire.

Did England make a sudden shift to a completely symbolic monarchy with George I, or was that just the beginning of a more gradual process? But as with any drama, the minor players often manage to steal the show: Robert Curthose, The Empress Matilda, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Edward the Black Prince, John of Gaunt, and Warwick “The Kingmaker,” to name a few standouts.I love history but the blood, gore, and torture of the Dark Ages has always been a little hard to stomach.
