Description

Since the Norman Conquest, our kings and queens have been closely linked with sport for many reasons - personal pleasure, to raise money or to further their political and military ambitions. Our Sporting Monarchs uncovers in gripping and colourful detail the story of how the monarchy and sport have interacted over the past 1,200 years.
