This was an interesting nonfiction book about the dynasties in England - starting with the Tudors and ending with the current Windsors. This was a fun (though sometimes a bit dull) read about some of the wackiest and most interesting monarchs - though I admit as we've become more current the monarchs get considerably less fascinating. Overall I liked this book - it gave me a little perspective on England's time periods, and that helps many events fall into place in a timeline of dynasties.
