Series: History of Britain
By Ruth Brocklehurst
From Alfred the Great to Queen Elizabeth II, this is the story of one of the oldest monarchies in the world. Discover how Britain’s history has been shaped by the lives, loves, triumphs and tragedies of its kings and queens, brought vividly to life in this stunning hardback book with majestic portraits, colourful timelines and family trees.
When she wasn’t out riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth Brocklehurst spent much of her childhood reading – especially historical novels and whodunits. Since joining Usborne in 2000, she has written and edited countless books on everything from craft activities and history, to creative writing, space exploration and dinosaurs. If she could go back in time she’d like to meet Mary Queen of Scots.
