Description

Historia regum Britanniae (The History of the Kings of Britain), is an account of British history, written around 1136 by Geoffrey of Monmouth. It chronicles the lives of the kings of the Britons over the course of two thousand years, beginning with the Trojans founding the British nation and continuing until the Anglo-Saxons assumed control of much of Britain around the 7th century. Even though it is now considered to have no real historical basis (the accounts of Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain, for example, is very different to more established accounts), it remains a valuable piece of medieval literature.

This book has 255 pages in the PDF version. This translation by Sebastian Evans was originally published in 1904.

Production notes: This e-book of Histories of the Kings of Britain was published by Global Grey in 2019.
