Summary
'Gimson's Kings and Queens' whirls us through the lives of our monarchs, to tell a tale of bastardy, courage, conquest, brutality, vanity, vulgarity, corruption, anarchy, absenteeism, piety, nobility, divorce, execution, civil war, madness, magnificence, profligacy, frugality, philately, abdication, dutifulness, family breakdown and family recovery. Written in Andrew Gimson's inimitable style, this is both primer and refresher for all those people who can never quite remember which were the good and bad Edwards or Henrys, or the reasons so-and-so succeeded to the throne rather than his second cousin
