    Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite

    Author Michael Thomas Barry has done in-depth research on the royal families of Great Britain, going back to those who governed the land before the Norman Invasion in 1066 and the rise of William the Conqueror. Barry writes on all the sovereigns, the Plantagenets, the rulers of the houses of York and Lancaster, the Tudors, the Stuarts, their spouses, the controversies surrounding them and their years of reign. The author also tells us where the monarchs are buried and if and when their bodies were moved or just removed, lost during wars or destroyed by angry and hateful opponents. He covers the famous mystery of the two young princes, Edward and Richard, who might have been killed lest one of them gain the throne and so whose bodies were hidden in the walls of the Tower of London. Plentiful and excellent color pictures of each king and queen, their consorts and burial sites, plus charts, a genealogy at the beginning, an extensive bibliography and index complete "Great Britain's Royal Tombs: a Guide to the Lives and Burial Places of British Monarchs".

    "Great Britain's Royal Tombs" is a highly readable and comprehensive look into where England's kings and queens are buried and it is also a fascinating retelling of their lives, when and how they ascended to the throne of England and how they actually died and what probably caused their deaths. For instance, the author reports that the famous Black Prince very probably died of cancer. The author also notes interesting facts such as the royal family changing its last name to Windsor during World War I lest people turn against them for their German ancestry. Michael Barry has created a masterpiece, a brilliant overview of Great Britain's royal rulers, that belongs in libraries worldwide and will be loved by Anglophiles everywhere.
