Most of us know that Queen Victoria ruled over a great Empire, that King John signed the Magna Carta, and that Harold was killed at the Battle of Hastings. But this book, for inquisitive visitors to the royal palaces and monarchy buffs everywhere, takes us to the heart of the matter, and tells us what we really want to know about life behind the palace walls: Which monarch had the most eccentricities? Which king pawned his crown? Did monarchs use contraception? What made Mary I "bloody"? Was George III's madness caused by porphyria, or was it arsenic poisoning? Who was Britain’s first royal motorist? Did Mary Queen of Scots murder her husband?
