sainsburys sold a book which i have at home, which is slightly wrong about its information. its about the british monarchy from the beginning to now and it says under george 5th, the most dramatic event in his reign was the abdication of the tsar his cousin in 1919 and it shows a picture of a man and a woman in fur hats with a couple of toddlers with them, being approached by bolshies. thats a bit wrong isn't it? ;)

Well yeah, I'd say that was wrong since Nicholas and his family were killed in 1918. There's a book out there that I tend to see a lot in charity shops, made by St. Michael's Press (marketed by Marks and Spencers) and it's one of those "Kings and Queens of England" type books. One tiny error--there's no trace of Edward VII. It goes from Victoria right to George V.  ???
