A charming compendium of facts and tales about Britain's rich royal history of kings, queens and castles.
     Bestselling author Christopher Winn explores Britain's royal past, unearthing a rich legacy of castles and palaces, cathedrals and country retreats, battlefields and monuments where kings and queens lived and died.
