Not your average person's genealogy, but Ian Crofton's book "The Kings and Queens of England" is a simple guide to the monarchy. It's well laid out and alongside the text there is a brief biography and timeline for every monarch, so it's easy to see at a glance the key information about each one. It starts with Alfred the Great and continues up to Elizabeth II. To please the genealogists there are also dynastic family trees.

Published in 2006, the retail price was 16.99, but I recently acquired a copy for 7 through one of the book companies that bring books into the workplace.

We sometimes have visitors from abroad and are embarrassed to find that we can't remember all our school history, so simple reference books like this are invaluable.
