    From Athelstan to Elizabeth II, Loades provides biographical studies of the men and women who ruled England, first as war lords, then as overlords of a powerful nobility, as divinely appointed rulers, as sovereigns responsible to Parliament and lastly, as figureheads of a democratic state. This is, in Loades's words, 'the story of a unique set of individuals whose special circumstances set them apart from the state which they aspired to rule, and from the society which made up that state'.
