The Comical Eye's British Monarchy: From Alfred the Great to Charles III

We can order this from our supplier
The story of the British Royal Family over a thousand years, the reigns of every monarch sketched in a sharp, funny, and useful vignette of words and pictures - with a full Family Tree on the back.
Which kings couldn't speak English, or stammered when they could? Who were "Softsword" and "Sailor Bill"? Which king had 10 children with his mistress but none with his queen? Which kings were crowned twice? Which queen reigned for only 9 days? Which king disappeared? Here is a comic strip with a difference, an alternative (and funnier) Bayeux Tapestry tracing every king and queen from Alfred the Great to Charles III - each of their vivid pen-and-ink-portraits encapsulating the personal quirks and dramatic social change of their reigns. This single-sheet poster-sized booklet unfolds the politics, passions, and pageantry of the English and later British Royal Family, from 871 to 2023: the tyrants, eccentrics, warriors, and murderers, as well as the saints, scholars, patrons, and philosophers, whose joint story this is. Or, rather, their joined-up history, as the graphic artwork on the back illustrates, showing the complete Family Tree of the families and dynasties of our island story.
