9780224101196: Gimson's Kings and Queens: Brief Lives of the Forty Monarchs since 1066

‘A few faults are indispensable to a really popular monarch’ – George Bernard Shaw

There have been many popular ‘stuff you learned at school’-type books, of course, but none that has dealt with the Royal Family in such a sweep and certainly none written with such elan. Gimson’s Kings and Queens whirls us through the lives of our monarchs, to tell a tale of bastardy, courage, conquest, brutality, vanity, vulgarity, corruption, anarchy, absenteeism, piety, nobility, divorce, execution, civil war, madness, magnificence, profligacy, frugality, philately, abdication, dutifulness, family breakdown and family recovery.

Written in Andrew Gimson’s inimitable style, and illustrated by Martin Rowson throughout, this is both primer and refresher for all those people who can never quite remember which were the good and bad Edwards or Henrys, or the reasons so-and-so succeeded to the throne rather than his second cousin.

Published in August 2015, to coincide with the moment (in September) when Elizabeth II will (barring accident or shock abdication) become the longest-serving English monarch ever, Gimson’s Kings and Queens will be the most entertaining and instructive book on the monarchy you will ever read.
