Even Queen Victoria herself would be amused (not to mention astonished) by the hundreds of revelations to be found within The Royal Book of Lists.
Covering over a thousand years of royal history, this fascinating book tells the often turbulent story of a nation and an empire through those privileged few who came to embody it. In the process, author Matt Richardson has succeeded in highlight all the triumphs, tragedies, and of course the scandals that are central to this rich heritage.
Balanced, in-depth, frequently irreverent but always compelling, The Royal Book of Lists has something to interest everyone. Coming as it does in time for Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee, the book stands as a timely and accessible introduction to Britain's - and Canada's - royal family.
