"An essential guide to the British monarchy for those who should
already know everything but don't. Written with a lively wit but
crammed with factual information, this is the perfect way to mug up
on your British history." --the Oldie
"One way we remember history is by means of a good yarn . . . Flude's gem of a book works on this premise - that it is the human stories of our monarchs we remember - and he breaks them down into delightful bite-sized chunks." --Family History Monthly
