king edward vii family tree Christopher Hibbert is one of my favorite historians and he does not disappoint with the biography of Edward VII. Beginning with the future Kings childhood, he fills his narrative with descriptive and sometimes gossipy facts about what it was like to be the not very well liked oldest child of Queen Victoria. As Prince of Wales, he had to wait until the end of his life before attaining the throne and those intervening years were filled with caprice, scandal, and too much time on his hands. He did, however, in his later years gain a reputation that endeared him not only to the English people but also to the French and was considered the Uncle of Europe. Be warned.....there is a lot of detail in this book which slows down the narrative in some places but not enough to disconcert the reader.

they came before columbus summary They Came Before Columbus reveals a compelling, dramatic, and superbly detailed documentation of the presence and legacy of Africans in ancient America. Examining navigation and shipbuilding; cultural analogies between Native Americans and Africans; the transportation of plants, animals, and textiles between the continents; and the diaries, journals, and oral accounts of the explorers themselves, Ivan Van Sertima builds a pyramid of evidence to support his claim of an African presence in the New World centuries before Columbus. Combining impressive scholarship with a novelistís gift for storytelling, Van Sertima re-creates some of the most powerful scenes of human history: the launching of the great ships of Mali in 1310 (two hundred master boats and two hundred supply boats), the sea expedition of the Mandingo king in 1311, and many others. In They Came Before Columbus, we see clearly the unmistakable face and handprint of black Africans in pre-Columbian America, and their overwhelming impact on the civilizations they encountered..

horrible histories terrible tudors facts Even More Terrible Tudors is a book my parents got me in 2003 to read when we started studying the Tudors at school and I remember flying through it about seven times in that year before losing interest and never coming back to it. This was a book that really helped me learn a lot at a young age and I really aced history class when we were studying this for the first time. I was totally enamoured, the humour having me turn the pages constantly, devouring every word even when I could almost recite it word for word. It was absolutely wonderful.
