Divorced, Beheaded, Died – Kevin Flude

download-45

This book is a great little summary of British monarchs in easy to read bite-sized chunks – a pocket history. It’s not for people who have a lot of knowledge about British history but it would be a useful book if you wanted to remind yourself who’s who.

There is a brief history of each person, their basic story but a good introduction to people if you are looking for a gentle ease into the history of the monarchs.

It skims over the Scottish and Welsh monarchs, the information on them is minimal and squeezed into a few pages at the end.

There were a few “facts” that I raised my eyebrows at though but other than that I’d say give it a read if you want to brush up on your British history in a light way.
