In this `Book of Royal Days' you can find out what befell the kings and queens of England, and their lovers, on any given day. Did you know, for instance, that William III was killed by a mole on March 8 in 1702? On the day on which this review was written, July 19th, Henry VIII watched the Mary Rose sink (1545), Lady Jane Grey was taken to the Tower (1553) and Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones were married (1999). Each date has one or two events described in some detail, in humorous and informative prose, with other notable events summarised.

It's just what it says, "A Book of Days". Every day is there with a short mention of what happened in English History. Not an in-depth bio at all! I was looking for something more interesting (read juicy)and it isn't that at all. It might rate five-stars with others, but I was disappointed.
