Synopsis

Historians and broadcasters Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan introduce the most powerful men and women in English, and later British, society.



Opening with the reign of King Alfred, during which the foundations of the nation were laid, The Kings and Queens of England introduces the monarchs who have ruled through personal and political strife, triumph, war and peacetime. Snow and MacMillan offer a unique insight into the waxing and waning fortunes of these formidable rulers, from those such as devious King John who ruled with cruelty and fabled warrior-king William the Conqueror, to our own Elizabeth II, admired for her diplomacy and integrity while presiding over turbulent times.



This is the story of the evolution of modern civilization, told through the lens of those who have ruled it.
