DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

For over thirty years the English Monarchs series has brought the highest standards of historical scholarship to the widest possible readership. Harnessing the latest research, leading historians scrutinize the lives of the kings and queens of England and explore the cumulative impact of the longest permanent governing institution in Europe. [publisher] This is probably better described as a publisher series, since the books were often not originally published by Yale, but this version of the series was the most complete. It is called both the Yale English Monarch Series and the English Monarch series. At this time (June 2021), there are some lacunae in the series. The kings between Æthelstan and Æthelred are omitted. as are the rulers between Mary I (1553-1558) and James II (1685-1688), and between James II and Anne (1702-1714). The series ends with George IV (1820-1830). (English, Member-written)
