The dramatic story of more than 1000 years of British royalty - from King Alfred's battles against the Vikings - to Queen Elizabeth II and the Princess of Wales told in this volume. The distinctive chronicle style of reporting the events of the past as if they had just happened brings alive a royal saga of intrigue and scandal, murder and mistresses, heroes and villains. The reader can follow monarchs as they fight for the crowns of England, Scotland and Britain, and join William the Conquerer and Henry V as they lead their armies into battle. The reader discovers the secrets they kept from their contemporaries and can marvel at the pomp of imperial grandeur as British rule stretched across the globe. Special features include: an appendix on palaces and other royal residences; a free full-colour wallchart depicting the royal family trees of England, Scotland and Wales from 896 to 1990; and over 100 pages devoted to the 20th-century Royal family. The book is written by a team of British journalists responsible for the other "Chronicles" and has been checked by leading historians and other authorities on royal history.
