A humorous account of the demise of British royalty, the dynasty of massive repute.'There was nothing very funny to write about his death except to say it was much appreciated.'From the tragic to the humorous, the unexpected to the almost unbelievable, And Then the King Died recalls the fascinating history of royal demises in Great Britain, from Alfred the Great to George VI. Murder, madness, unfortunate accidents and toilet problems all feature in this absorbing and at times hilarious account of the deaths of our nation's monarchs.The book takes each royal character in turn and deals with their end. A chapter by chapter, summary of the causes of death in the royal lineage, and full of human interest.The characters in this book are all well known to the potential readers. They have entered our mythology and the fabric of our society and moulded the British identity. They are known for their exploits and for the achievements of the citizens who contributed during their lifetimes. This book describes another side to their existence, their frailty and vulnerability, their final conflict.The book is a light-hearted and sometimes irreverent study of the human side of well-known leaders. Some may see the content as an allegory for the present state of the monarchy. Others may worry that the topic could be given more consideration in the forthcoming months.
