History with the nasty bits left in! Cruel Kings and Mean Queens gives you the horrible historical facts on all our shocking sovereigns, from William the Conker right up to Lizzie the Last. It'll tell you what you really want to know, like which king died after falling off the toilet, why people thought King John was a werewolf, why Queen Anne's feet were covered in garlic ... and much more, including foul but fascinating facts on horrible habits, ghastly palace ghosts, and the dreadful royal doctors of days gone by. This grippingly gruesome guide lets you into the secrets of our mad, menacing and murderous monarchs and the terrible times in which they ruled. History has never been so horrible!
