Overview

They walked us through the foggy, dreary and dank centuries of the Dark Ages where they fought their bloody dynastic wars right up and into the artistic enlightenment of the Renaissance with their courts of finery and pageantry.

They rode atop their mighty steeds adorned in shiny shimmering armor and endangered their lives for the sake of a lady's colors at the tiltyard tournament Jousts.

They waltzed us through the more delicate Victorian era of refinement into the sophisticated Edwardian period with their lavish living and carefree lifestyles.

They rose above the ashes and destruction of the World Wars and moved bravely forward, becoming a part of the fast modern age of technology.

All through time since the days of Camelot they played their own separate roles that contributed to the molding and creating of their island kingdom.

They were tall, they were short, they were mean, and they were kind. Some were considered to be great, some not so great. Some were powerful leaders while others were weak. Some were greedy not caring about the people, yet there were those who accomplished good deeds for the people and the country. Some died peaceful deaths and then there were those that died violent deaths either by sword in battle, an executioner's axe or even other more horrific ways of demise.

Now it is for us to take the time and tear away those dusty shrouds of history and become better acquainted with those faces that stare back at us from their immortal portraits that hang high upon their castle and palace walls.

To do so we bring all these Monarchs back alive within our imaginations where we can relive their lives better appreciating all the wonderful beauty, splendor and legends they left behind for us to share, those immortal "Kings and Queens of England".
