Crown & Sceptre tells the story of a thousand years of kings and queens in Britain and it could not be more appropriate. In the wake of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, this brilliant history of our monarchy, one of the most enduring institutions in the world, reminds us how important and precious it has been. Britain’s kings and queens have survived the storms of rebellion, revolution and war that swept away other European dynasties because successive generations have been remarkably responsive to change. Tom Holland wrote that this beautifully made book was ‘Not just a brilliant compendium of biographies, but the biography of an institution: a marvellous read.’
