Did you know that William IV was wont to speak his mind, and could sometimes lack tact, which is said to have inspired the nickname "Silly Billy?" Or that Edward III banned all sports, including soccer, on Sundays, so that his subjects could be free to concentrate solely on their archery? Or that coronation chicken was invented for foreign guests to enjoy at Elizabeth II's coronation? This rich miscellany celebrates the fascinating history of the British Royal Family, from the reign of Egbert, King of Wessex, to the monarchy of the present day. Full of titillating trivia, little-known facts, bite-size biographies and memorable quotations, it paints a colorful picture of how the kings and queens of that noble land have shaped the way we live today.
