If you unfold the pages of British history, the legacy of British emperors & kings would stand tall, reflecting the rich bequest, heritage and culture of the British Empire. Having had the monarchical rule ever since times immemorial, British Empire has witnessed a consortium of emperors and kings, who have ruled the kingdom at various phases, each adding to the glory and prestige of the nation. Be it Alfred the Great or William the Conqueror, Henry VIII or Elizabeth I, the longest ever reigning monarch Queen Victoria or the current and second longest British monarch, Elizabeth II, each of them significantly contributed to make Britain what it is today. While some augmented the country’s legal system and military structure, there were others who took measures to give the country its architectural marvels, and still others who promoted the growth of art, culture and science. While each had their own sense of uniqueness, what has been common to all is their leadership skills, warrior instinct, charming mannerism and committed self. The section below gives details about the life and works of numerous British Emperors & Kings. Read on.
