Product Description

Product Description

Over more than a millennium, the British monarchy has survived brutality, betrayal, and bloodshed to emerge as the oldest functioning political institution in Europe. Join eminent historian David Starkey (The Six Wives of Henry VIII) as he probes the personalities of the men and women who wore the crown. Meet the Anglo-Saxon king Offa, who ruled more like a mafioso than a monarch; Henry VIII, who cultivated celebrity like a modern rock star; and Victoria, who remade the monarchy into the model of middle-class morality. Through it all, visit the very sites where history happened: Hastings, Bosworth Field, the Tower of London, and more.

In this captivating 16-part series, Starkey advances a unifying narrative-the dynamic tension between authoritarian order and rule by consent of the governed-that makes Britain unique among the world's nations.

An honorary fellow at Cambridge University and a member of London's Society of Royal Antiquaries, David Starkey (CBE) has taught history at the London School of Economics, written more than a dozen books, and presented many acclaimed television documentaries.

A very intelligent, insightful and dramatic look at the evolution of the British monarch from the post-Romano-British Anglo-Saxon kings to the modern day monarchs. A brilliant history of a fascinating institution.

Brilliant. Everyone should watch it for quality and excellence. I am learning so much not just about the history of the English monarchy but about human nature that hasn't change.
