From Alfred the Great, in the ninth century, to Elizabeth II today, 56 varied men and women have reigned as kings or queens of England.  Some reigned in splendor, several were murdered, a few were executed, others shaped the culture of the world, and many served in obscurity. From the intriguing chronicles of the reign and wives of Henry VIII, through Queen Victoria, the “cousin’s war” of World War I, and the tragic story of Prince Charles and Lady Diana, the English monarchy has made an incredible mark of history. The institution of the monarchy is deeply ingrained in the British culture and their weddings, births and tragedies have continued to fascinate the world.  This is the captivating story of kings and queens of the British monarchy.


Herb Kaufman is a teacher, lecturer and historian.  For 15 years he was a Civil War reenactor with Company C, 28th Pennsylvania Regiment and is an Adjunct Professor and founding member of the faculty of the Civil War Institute at Manor College. While his initial interest in history focused on the Civil War, his presentations have expanded to numerous historical topics. Mr. Kaufman teaches at a number of life-long learning institutes and lectures to numerous community groups.
