An interesting approach to the history of the English monarchy. -- History of War Five stars... A great read. Andrews' writing is brisk and wry, frequently sardonic. -- City Book Review If you like history you'll love this book - and no doubt you'll have your own opinion as to which of the heroes and villains would have made good monarchs. -- Lost Cousins Authoritative, educational and extremely entertaining.-- Books Monthly Rather informative... If you want to read an intriguing book about some mysterious men and women in history, I highly recommend you read, Lost Heirs of the Medieval Crown. -- Adventures of a Tudor Nerd
