Kings and Queens of England

Publisher: Wikibooks
Number of pages: 85

Description:
In this book we start by looking at the very first Anglo-Saxon Kings of England. We then move on to show how the Crown changed many hands as a result of conquest. We see some powerful kings and some weak ones. We see how the Crown has battled Parliament. We look at the period where the power finally did transfer to Parliament through to the times of our current queen, Elizabeth II. At the end we also look at who the next kings of England may be.
