Kings and Queens of England and Scotland

Kings and Queens of England and Scotland

Fry, Plantagenet Somerset



Fall River Press: In the long and tangled history of the British Isles, one thread runs continuously for nearly 1200 years: in almost unbroken descent from Ecgberht, the first Saxon King of England in 829 to Charles, Prince of Wales, the monarchy has been present at almost every stage, molding events and making news. Kings and Queens is the essential guide to the kings and queens of England and Scotland, their families,courtiers, and friends. The parallel history of the Scottish monarchy-from Kenneth MacAlpin in 843 to James IV in 1603-is described in detail, while events in Wales and Ireland are also featured. Chronology boxes reveal the major events of each monarch's reign, and at-a-glance family trees show the line of succession to the throne over the centuries.
