Unruly: The Ridiculous History of England's Kings and Queens

Unruly: The Ridiculous History of England's Kings and Queens - David Mitchell

Unruly: The Ridiculous History of England's Kings and Queens

A rollicking history of England's earliest kings and queens, a story of narcissists, excessive beheadings, middle-management insurrection, uncivil wars, and more, from award-winning British actor and comedian David Mitchell Think you know the kings and queens of England? Think again. In Unruly, David Mitchell explores how early England's monarchs, while acting as feared rulers firmly guiding their subjects' destinies, were in reality a bunch of lucky bastards who were mostly as silly and weird in real life as they appear to us today in their portraits. Taking us right back to King Arthur (spoiler: he didn't exist), Mitchell tells the founding story of post-Roman England right up to the reign of Elizabeth I (spoiler: she dies), as the monarchy began to lose its power. It's a tale of bizarre and curious ascensions, inadequate self-control, and at least one total Cnut, as the English evolved from having their crops stolen by the thug with the largest armed gang to bowing and paying taxes to a divinely anointed King. How this happened, who it happened to, and why the hell it matters are all questions Mitchell answers with brilliance, wit, and the full erudition of a man who once studied history--and is damned if he'll let it off the hook for the mess it's made of everything. A funny book that takes history seriously, Unruly is for anyone who has ever wondered how the monarchy came to be--and who is to blame.
