Once more, Claire Ridgway presents the reader with a wonderful source of information, and this time in a concise form on the lives of ALL the kings and queens in English history. It gives the reader a taster of their lives and reigns, providing you with a wonderful overview of all the highlights of every British monarch from King Alfred the Great to Queen Elizabeth II. Each of the 59 monarchs in the book covers two pages, one with a summary of important dates, interesting facts and a short biography, and the other with a beautifully restored vintage etching. Bright colours were professionally added to antique engravings from John Cassell’s “Illustrated History of England” by Claire’s husband Tim and daughter Verity Ridgway.
This book will be a great addition to any history collection, it’s the perfect coffee-table book and I highly recommend this beautiful book to every history buff.
Illustrated Kings and Queens of England by Claire Ridgway, Timothy Ridgway and Verity Ridgway, published by MadeGlobal Publishing in 2016 and available in hard cover, paperback and E-book from all Amazon sites and directly from the Publisher.
