Royal Wills in Britain from 1509 to 2008 by Michael L. Nash
English | 14 Mar. 2017 | ISBN: 1137601442 | 217 Pages | PDF | 2.31 MB

This is the first book on Royal Wills since 1780 and aims to take over where the previous ones (in 1775 and 1780) left off. Therefore the period 1509 to 2008 is covered. It aims to uncover the many dilemmas and conundrums they have had to deal with, against a backdrop of Imperial splendor and political strife, society scandals and in later instances, a disintegrating infrastructure.

Great sporting prowess and a battle with alcohol. A charmer and a rogue. A visionary who seemed bereft of insight into himself. First-hand experience of racial tension. This could be a contemporary story, but it's 150 years old. It's the narrative of the life of Tom Wills, one of the most important sportsmen in the history of this country - he was a cricketer of international repute and creator of Australian Rules football in 1858. But Wills' story goes way beyond sport to become important social history. Sent to Rugby School at 14, he returned as a self-sufficient worldly young man. His father was killed by Aborigines in Queensland yet Wills went on to coach Aboriginal cricketers who became the first Australian cricket team to tour England. He was outspoken in the press on many social and political issues. So much success, yet he took his own life at 44, stabbing himself in the heart. He was destitute. The sporting achievements of Tom Wills are well documented, but the real Wills has remained elusive until now. De Moore brings this extraordinary man to life.

Britannia, AD 45. Il piano di Roma di insediare un monarca alleato a capo di una tribù ostile rischia di fallire. Una sinistra setta di Druidi, guidata da un carismatico sacerdote, minaccia di destabilizzare la provincia e ha fatto prigionieri svariati soldati romani. Ora l'optio Orazio Figulo deve affrontare la sua missione più pericolosa. Deve avventurarsi in profondità dietro le linee nemiche alla ricerca dei suoi compagni catturati e della fortezza segreta dei Druidi. Riuscirà Figulo a impedire ai Druidi della Luna Nera di infliggere una devastante sconfitta alla Seconda Legione? Riuscirà a salvare i suoi compagni prima che vengano giustiziati nel corso di un terribile rituale?
