Royal watchers and history buffs know William the Conqueror, Victoria, Henry VIII, and (of course) Elizabeth II. But do you know King Oswy, who helped establish England as a Roman Catholic country in A.D. 644? Or Harthacnut, England's second Viking king, whose heavy taxation inspired Lady Godiva's infamous naked protest? What about Boudicca, the warrior queen who waged a war of vengeance against the Romans? Divorced, Beheaded, Died... outlines the history of Britain's crowned heads, beginning in 1160 B.C. with the Trojan Brutus. Though most of these entries are only a paragraph or two in length, taken together the bite-sized biographies paint a surprisingly insightful portrait of that scepter'd isle's incredible history.
