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 invented the handkerchief? Which queen pretended to be invisible? Which king was afraid of witches? Did King Canute harness the waves? Why did Charles II hide in an oak tree? Which king pawned his crown? Did monarchs use contraception? Who was Britain's first royal motorist? Did Mary Queen of Scots murder her husband?
