Kings and Queens of Early Britain

By Geoffrey Ashe

From the founding of Britain to the crowning of Alfred the Great, in this updated volume, Geoffrey Ashe investigates legendary British monarchs of old.

From Brutus the Trojan in 1100BC, and the early famed rulers Bran the Blessed and King Lear to the leaders of Roman Britain, Boudicca and Alfred.

Drawing on archaeological and documentary evidence, Ashe identifies real and imagined rulers from Geoffrey of Monmouth’s History of the Kings of Britain and Gildas, including King Arthur and other powerful figures in the histories of England, Scotland and Wales.

Kings and Queens of Early Britain is a fascinating study of the origins of Britain that can offer much to our understanding of the country in the present day.
