Waterstones Says

The popular Youtuber takes a hilariously skewed look at history, bypassing the famous names in favour of celebrating the incidental and accidental figures who changed the world.

Signed Edition - A Standard Edition is also available

History belongs to the heroes. But to get the full story, sometimes you have to ask the side characters.
 
The lives of Leonardo da Vinci, Henry VIII and Queen Victoria fill bookshelves and fascinate scholars all over the world. But little attention is given to the ferret who posed for the renaissance master, the servant who oversaw the Tudor’s toilet time, or the famous horse who thrilled the miserable old monarch.
 
These supporting cast members have been waiting in the wings for too long, and Adrian Bliss thinks it’s high time they join their glory-hogging contemporaries in the spotlight. Fortunately, - thanks to some recently discovered ancient complaint letters, court transcripts and memoirs in bottles - now they can.
 
Equal parts fascinating and hilarious, the Greatest Nobodies of History is a surreal love letter to life’s forgotten heroes featuring hitherto undocumented accounts from Ancient Greece to the frontlines of the Great Emu War.
 
 All that follows really happened, and some of it could even be true
