really liked it
bookshelves: audiobook, bio-and-memoir, history
Recommended for: Anglophiles
Read in August, 2008

Profiles of the personalities of each monarch from William the Conqueror to Elizabeth II. Historical details themselves, such as the American Revolution, are mentioned briefly in context of the overall reign (Cromwell is omitted entirely, for those wondering). I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned; never did I find the material dry or boring - definitely recommended!

Bettie☯ Cromwell was omitted because he was not a monarch so would not fit into this title. It was Queen Christina of Sweden who wished him to be crowned King Ollie I.
