It is an A3 size, 350 plus number of pages book written in a comical format, which makes it all the more interesting. In fact I flipped through most of the facts in one sitting.
So do you know how the Danish Prince William discovered he has become King?
Who introduced Golf & Horse Racing to England?
How did Nero manage to get his half brother murdered?
What happens when a non-native fish is brought to a land? How does the equilibrium get disturbed and therefore why was the catch and eat program introduced in Japan?
Whose famous words were- (I am in) no danger, for no man would take away my life to make you king of England!
Whose said _ let them eat cake!
And more such tales from ancient kings and queens. A treasure trove indeed.
