Opening with the reign of King Alfred, during which the foundations of the nation were laid, this book introduces the monarchs who have ruled through personal and political strife, triumph, war and peacetime. This is the story of modern civilization.

Kings & Queens explores the lives, loves, triumphs and disasters of a monarchy that is the envy of the world. Snow and MacMillan offer a unique insight into those born to rule, whether villains or heroes from cruel King John and warrior-king Edward III, to our own Elizabeth II: dutiful, discreet and the longest-reigning queen in the world.
