Kings and Queens by Sir Tony Robinson


Kings and Queens by Sir Tony Robinson

Kings and Queens have always provided their subjects with a great deal to talk about. But how much do we really know about them? For instance, who became king when he was only nine months old? Which king invented the handkerchief? Which king died on the toilet? And who is England's longest reigning monarch? In this fascinating and witty look at kings and queens of England, Tony Robinson provides all the answers to these questions and many, many more.


How can it be that we had to sit through interminable boring history lessons when our offspring are treated to such interesting stuff? This book is just fantastic Hullaballoo!
