9780006329480: The Saxon and Norman Kings (British monarchy series)

'An illuminating and imaginative
reconstruction of what it really meant to be a king in Saxon and Norman times. The
essential merits of this book are its lightness of touch and its firm grounding in
scholarship.' Economist

'The whole book is packed with valuable
insights ... It is a book to be read and
cherished by everyone who is interested in
the English past.' Alfred Duggan, Sunday
Times

'In this illuminating account Professor
Brooke depicts kingship in England from
the time of the Teutonic invasions in the
fifth century to the accession of Henry II in
the twelfth. The theme is engaging, and its
treatment vivid.' Times Literary Supplement

'One of the outstanding merits of Professor
Brooke's book is the lucid way in which he
expounds the most recent discoveries of
research.' British Book News

The cover illustration is a detail from the New Minster Charter of 966 showing a detail of the head of King Edgar (British Museum)
