Summary

Over 1,000 years of royal history told through 100 fascinating objects.

From the glory of coronation regalia to coins, from imposing statues to stamps, and from distinguished medals to monuments, each item in this book has a fascinating story to tell.

Ordered chronologically by monarch, from Alfred the Great to Queen Elizabeth II, this fully illustrated book takes a regal journey through the centuries. Readers will discover the significance of each object—some famous, others more obscure—and how the royal ruler connected to it shaped the course of history in this celebration of the British monarchy.

Featured are William I’s eleventh-century survey, more famously known as the Domesday Book; the world’s first ever postage stamp, the Penny Black, with a cameo-style portrait of Queen Victoria; Edward VIII’s abdication document; the written birth announcement of Queen Elizabeth II, placed outside Buckingham Palace as per royal custom; and many more.
