In "The Queens of England," Barbara Softly gives a brief overview of each Queen of England since the first Century. I have a strong interest in British monarchs, so this was a perfect guide to getting to know a little more about the queens that were brushed over in history class, and the queens I had never heard of. I love reading about their accomplishments and their marriage dynamics. I hope Softly continues to update her Kings/Queens of England books
