The History of the Kings of Britain, by Geoffrey of Manmouth, with introduction by J. A. Giles. Illustrated with 10 unique illustrations.

The Historia Regum Britanniae (English: The History of the Kings of Britain) is a pseudohistorical account of British history, written around 1136 by Geoffrey of Monmouth. It chronicles the lives of the kings of the Britons in a chronological narrative spanning a time of two thousand years, beginning with the Trojans of Homer's Iliad founding the British nation and continuing until the Anglo-Saxons assumed control of Britain around the 7th century. It is one of the central pieces of the Matter of Britain.

Meet the Author

Very little is known of Geoffrey of Monmouth. He seems to have lived for a time in Oxford and in 1151 he became Bishop Elect of St Asaph, North Wales. He was ordained at Westminster in 1152. According to the Welsh Chronicles he died in 1155. Lewis Thorpe was Professor of French at Nottingham University from 1958 to 1977. He has published many books and articles on Arthur, both on the French and English traditions. He died in 1977.

    Not book shown.

    This book was highly recommended for my Literature of King Arthur class. I was under the impression that it would be the same book as pictured but unfortunately this is not the Penguin Classics edition. It was very important that I had that specific edition for the introduction and style of writing. Now I have to find it on amazon or buy the softback copy.
