History Heroes: KINGS & QUEENS quiz card game contains individual, beautifully illustrated cards of forty key British kings and queens from Alfred the Great to our present day queen, Elizabeth II
Each card is illustrated to represent the individual monarch in history and shows their dates, her ‘house’ and seven gripping facts about them, including a joker fact about each character to surprise and/or entertain. Discover which monarch’s huge stomach exploded during his (oops, a bit of a clue there!) funeral, creating a terrible stench and who was described by one Victorian historian as ‘the most perfect character in history’.
Our KINGS & QUEENS game also contains a card with the famous rhyme to help all players remember the order of all the kings and queens from 1066 to the present day.
