Crown and Sceptre

A New History of the British Monarchy, from William the Conqueror to Elizabeth II

Tracy Borman

With biographical chapters on every king and queen since the Conquest, this sweeping history offers a chronological survey of the fortunes and misfortunes of the English – and later British – monarchy over a thousand years. It explores the dynastic marriages and intrigues that buttressed the institution, and the rebellions, executions and civil wars that led to its transition from autocratic rule to constitutional monarchy.
