The Kings and Queens of Scotland by Nicholas Best, National Gallery of Scotland Staff

One was stabbed to death in an attempted coup. Another was portrayed as a villain in one of Shakespeare's plays. They are among the kings and queens who ruled Scotland over the last nine hundred years. This engaging book reveals the personalities of the Scottish monarchy and notes the landmark events of each reign. 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.
