Most of us are fascinated by royalty, past and present. Whether glamorous or sordid, merrie or morose, our monarchs and their families have led lives very different from ours - and all too often they've held the Fate of the Nation in the palms of their hands. They've married for diplomatic reasons and created diplomatic incidents when they divorced. They've refused to marry and endangered the succession; they've borne a dozen children and still left no one to succeed them. They've got themselves excommunicated and created their own religions. They've waged war against their neighbours and their cousins; built frivolous summer palaces and formidable fortresses (and imprisoned their cousins in them). In so doing, they've left their mark all over Great Britain, in castles and churches, on battle fields and stained- glass windows. Their stories are written all across our landscape, if we know where to look for them. In this amusing and fast-paced tour of Britain, Caroline Taggart is our guide to all the weird and wonderful places connected with royalty over the last 1,500 years.
