An entertaining tour of British royalty for history buffs and Anglophiles. It makes the one-thousand-year historical survey entertaining & lively.

This audiobook presents a fascinating, entertaining, and enlightening look at the public and private lives of the British royal families through the centuries, from Norman William the Conqueror to today's Queen Elizabeth II. In addition to Sir Derek Jacobi's brilliant narration, six other actors bring to life interspersed diaries and speeches written by the English monarchs themselves as well as observations by their contemporaries. Specially commissioned period music weaves all elements together, adding excitement, authenticity, and entertainment value.

Richard Hampton and David Weston are London-based actors who have performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company for many years. They are also co-authors of Shakespeare: His Life and Work, an award winning audio original production published by The Audio Partners.
