Kings & Queens, part of our exciting new series of Haynes Pocket Manuals for children, provides information, facts and figures on all the kings and queens of England, from William I (1066-1087) to Elizabeth II (1952-present), including lots of fun and a few gory bits on the way. There is also an introduction about early rulers, and the book is fully illustrated. This manual will bring history alive for young readers.
