MONARCHY


 

The history of the Crown in England.

The history of the Crown in England.

This eleven episode series is honestly the best documentary on the history of the English Monarchy. David Starky is a respected Historian who speaks like a true English Gentleman while taking the viewer back to the birth of Christendom and the crowning of the first King, King Albert. The topics of each Monarch to our present Queen Elizabeth II cover inside the royal family courts following marriages,  successions, wars for the throne, murders, royal executions all while brilliantly including the religious history without bias or opinion.

Starky pulls most of his facts straight from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and gives a memorable gift of taking the viewer to the shelves of some of the oldest libraries that house the rarest volumes in Britain. The is the added treat of a look at the exquisite hand painted pages of the ancient texts.

This documentary gets 6 stars, out of 5.
