Recenzii

Royal Wales is immaculately researched and entertainingly written. The author has a colloquial style that will appeal to the historian and lay reader alike. The book takes the reader on a voyage of exploration, from the times of the Welsh princes through the oppression of Edward Longshanks to the present day. It presents the story of royalty in Wales, native and foreign, leaving the reader to make judgments about rights and wrongs. Essential reading for anyone who considers themselves interested in Welsh history.”
