"Monarchs, Murderers and Mistresses" Reviews
Not a book to sit down and read straight through, I think -- the format means that all kinds of events are jumbled together, regardless of chronology -- but fun to dip into. James VI was married by proxy on my birthday, apparently -- and there were many suspicions of witchcraft. I love the 'headlines' that come underneath each date, which result in bizarre ones like "William III dies, killed by a mole".
The only thing I didn;t like about this book is that there was no order in timeline.
