A royal assembly of British monarchs, spanning over 1,200 years of history, fills the pages of this exciting coloring book. Beginning with Alfred the Great (who ruled from 871-899) and ending with the reigning queen, Elizabeth II, this regal parade invites you to have fun coloring while you learn fascinating facts about thirty rulers who have played important roles in English history.
In addition to the two sovereigns mentioned above, you'll also find detailed, well-researched drawings of William the Conqueror (1606-1087) setting sail from France to claim the English throne; Richard I, "the Lionheart" (1189-1199) leading Crusaders into battle; Elizabeth I (1558-1603) at the knighting of Sir Francis Drake aboard the Golden Hind; the execution of Charles I in 1649; and numerous other scenes depicting Richard III, Henry VIII, Mary I ("Bloody Mary"), Queen Victoria, King George VI, and many more.
Each monarch is shown in authentic costume, in a setting or event from his or her reign. Brief captions describe the scene illustrated.
