British Royal Family Trees: From William the Conqueror to the House of Windsor by Marilyn Roberts

Posted By Claire on February 11, 2014

British Royal FamiliesThis 28 page book is the perfect reference book for every bookcase. It’s a wonderful resource for schoolchildren, students, researchers, historical novelists and historians, and will settle arguments over dates and who ruled when.

It contains the following family trees:

  • The Normans
  • The Plantagenets
  • The Houses of Lancaster and York
  • The Woodvilles
  • The Tudors
  • Henry VIII and His Wives
  • The Stuarts
  • The Stuart Ancestors of Mary, Queen of Scots
  • The Descent of Elizabeth II from William the Conqueror
  • The Descent of the Late Diana, Princess of Wales from King Charles II
  • The Descent of Prince Charles and Princess Diana from Bess of Hardwick
  • The House of Hanover
  • The House of Windsor (formerly Saxe-Coburg Gotha)
  • Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

And each royal family tree has an introductory page giving short bios of the monarchs involved.

British Royal Family Trees also has a page entitled “Who Else Was Around”, listing famous artists, statesmen, inventors, composers, explorers, authors etc. and the dates when they lived. “Monarchs Since 1066” is a useful list of all English monarchs with the dates they reigned, the cause of their deaths, age at death, how many children they had with their spouse and how many illegitimate children they had. Finally, the book has a page of interesting quotations from some of those mentioned in the family trees.

It’s small, but it’s a treasure trove of information and well worth adding to your history book collection. It costs £4.50, plus postage, direct from the publisher, Queens-Haven Publications – see www.queens-haven.co.uk/queens-haven-orders.htm

    Claire,

    Thanks for the plug for the book – already had some super responses.

    Could I ask your readers ordering from the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the Rest of the World to scroll down the page until they find the relevant section, as the first section gives postage prices for the UK only. We have shied away from PayPal for overseas payments as a fellow writer had a few problems with currency conversion, BUT I WILL GET PAYPAL PUT ON FOR EVERYWHERE BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

    The total price is USA £8.30

    Australia £8.30

    New Zealand £8.30

    Rest of the World -please contact info@queens-haven.co.uk

    Thank you, and thanks to the people who have purchased.

    Marilyn
