The Kings Queens of England: The Biography

Availability: Ready to download

This is the history of the men and women who have occupied the highest position in English and later British society. For about a thousand years, they were superior lords, the leaders of nobility, which ruled; and for about three hundred years thereafter they were sovereigns, whose servants ruled in their name. Now, with the rise of democracy, they no longer rule. The Quee This is the history of the men and women who have occupied the highest position in English and later British society. For about a thousand years, they were superior lords, the leaders of nobility, which ruled; and for about three hundred years thereafter they were sovereigns, whose servants ruled in their name. Now, with the rise of democracy, they no longer rule. The Queen is a symbol and a social leader, vastly experienced in the ways of the world, and the head of a family, which strives to be useful in a modern community. The records of the monarchy vary from one period to another, and many of them are political in nature. However, it is always necessary to remember the human being behind the constitutional facade. This is an attempt to recover their identities.

    Review - I think that this is one of the best Kings and Queens books I have read, as it has the detail for each of the monarchs, and a summary of the different houses. However, what it could do with more of is the links between the English and Scottish houses as they eventually become one. It also encompasses the family trees of the monarchs. It's an interesting summation of the monarchs and the relations between them.

    The beginning of the book (between the intro through the Stewarts) was very thorough and fascinating to read, and everything past felt like a chore. It's more likely due to my disinterest in "recent monarchy" but I also wasn't impressed with the author's writing style nor did I feel that he had invested a lot of interest in the later monarchs. Definitely is exactly what you would expect it to be. Outlined each monarch based on available information and as far as I could tell was rather unbiased The beginning of the book (between the intro through the Stewarts) was very thorough and fascinating to read, and everything past felt like a chore.
