With Antionia Fraser's abridged biography at its core, this book chronicles the life and times of Charles II. It paints a picture of a glorious but troubled Restoration period, which followed Oliver Cromwell's Puritan Commonwealth, presenting the world in which the king moved: the dress, the manners, the morals, the entertainment and the society.
The year 1485, when Henry Tudor defeated Richard Plantagenet at Bosworth Field, for many marks the end of the Middle Ages. Born in 1456, amidst the upheaval of the Wars of the Roses, King Henry spent his formative years in exile at the Twilight Court of Brittany, where he learnt a conservative approach in rule and administration, tending to retain rather than innovate. Yet his reign coincided with the High Renaissance of Michelangelo and da Vinci, with Columbus' discoveries, and with the spread of learning in Europe.
William IV reigned during one of the most important periods in English history. Peel, Grey and Melbourne were political giants of the day and the Reform of Parliament was the main and lasting achievement. Here, the author reveals his adherence to duty and his role in the conflicts of his time.;Ann Somerset's historical biographies include "Ladies-in-Waiting: From the Tudors to the Present Day" and "Elizabeth I".

George V stood for order and tradition in an age of tumultuous change. Grandson of Queen Victoria, he was pragmatic and forthright but also a man of sensibility.

When Florence Nightingale staggered ashore at Scutari with her team of nurses in 1854, she knew she had a tough task ahead: to save the thousands of British soldiers injured in the disastrous Crimean War. But nothing could have prepared her for the horror that awaited her at the barrack hospital - few medicines; no clean water; and rats scuttling over the men as they lay moaning on the filthy floor.;Florence worked 22 hours a day for those soldiers, and returned to England a heroine. Not that she cared a jot, she said. She had never wanted fame. In fact, she preferred cats to people.
This exciting series looks at homes that were built in a past time but are still lived in by families today. Each book takes the reader on a journey around a house of a particular period, showing the rooms by way of photographs and artist's impressions as they are now and comparing them with how they were used by the people who first lived there. A wealth of information about the era helps to build up a fascinating picture of everyday life in a bygone age.
