A brand new dictionary giving a detailed history of the kings and queens of Britain, ranging from mythical and early pre-conquest rulers to the present House of Windsor. Covering English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish monarchs, the entries are ordered in sections, by regions for pre-1066 monarchs (Romano-British rulers, Viking York), and then by royal lines (Tudors, Hanoverian). From King Arthur to Queen Victoria, Vortigern to Owain Glyn Dwr, the dictionary gives comprehensive coverage of the rulers, their regnal dates, policies, characters, and the roles they played in shaping history.
Detailed boxed entries give information on themes such as Coronations and Regalia, and on significant royal residences or traditions like Sandringham House and Touching for the King's Evil.
Fully illustrated, there are-images of various monarchs, as well as regional maps and genealogies.
An ideal reference work for students of history at school or college, as well as in the home.
