James VI was married by proxy on my birthday, apparently -- and there were many suspicions of witchcraft. I love the 'headlines' that come underneath each date, which result in bizarre ones like "William III dies, killed by a mole".

The only thing I didn;t like about this book is that there was no order in timeline.
