Britain's Royal Heritage: An A to Z of the Monarchy Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With more than 2,000 entries, from Maundy Money to the Coronation Ceremony, this treasure trove details every aspect of the British monarchy and is packed with royal facts
More than a biography of kings and queens, this is an encyclopedic work on every aspect of monarchy in Britain from semi-legendary times to the present day. Arranged in an A to Z format, it includes mini biographies on each of the 42 kings and queens who have ruled since the Norman Conquest, details of the royal lines in Scotland before the Act of Union, the background to the royal houses of Britain, and the consorts, largely foreign, who have married into the monarchy. Royal scandals, wars, ceremonies, households, tombs, and insignia make this a fascinating read. It is the ideal reference work for all those who want to know more about individual monarchs and about the impressive legacy of myths, traditions, beliefs, and practices which have grown up around the institution of the monarchy.
