Every purchase helps support the ministry and fabric of the Abbey


Many Kings and Queens of England suffered extraordinary deaths. Handsome and virile in his youth. a rare medical condition turned Henry VIII into a bloates and grotesque old man. The dashing and glamourous Henry V probably died of cancer of the rectum, a fate that also befell Edward I. Charles I was beheaded. Henry VI was the victim of a grisly murder. Edward II, attacked with a red hot poker died in agony from traumatic perforation of the rectu,m. George II died in ignominy throned on the lavatory.

This book will enthrall and appall. 

Distinguished surgeon Clifford Brewer T.D. F.R.C.S. has made the death of kings the study of a lifetime, examining every act of violence and each unpleasant with a razor sharp eye for detail.
