They are among the kings and queens who ruled Scotland over the last nine hundred years.

Meet Alexander III, who launched a successful bid to recover the Western Isles from the King of Norway, and later married his daughter to the king's son; James V, who often moved among the peasants disguised as a farmer, listening to their opinions and seducing their daughters; and the rest of the royal line. Portraits of the monarchs let you put faces to the stories. 96 pages, 30 color illus., 10 b/w illus., 3 3/4 x 5 1/2.
