Kings and Queens of Scotland by Pat Southern
Book DescriptionThis volume charts that process, tracing it through the lives of the men and women whose ambitions drove it forward on the often rocky path from its semi-mythical foundations to its integration into the Stewart kingdom of Great Britain. It is a route way-marked by such towering personalities as Macbeth, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots, whose lives have made an indelible imprint in world history, but directed also by a host of less well-known figures, such as Causantin mac Aeda, who challenged the heirs of Alfred for the mastery of Britain; David I, who extended his kingdom almost to the gates of York; and James IV, builder of the finest navy in northern Europe. Their will and ambition, successes and failures not only shaped modern Scotland, but have left their mark throughout the British Isles and the wider world.

Empress Zenobia, Hardback (November 2008)
Zenobia was acknowledged in her lifetime as beautiful and clever, gathering writers and poets, artists and philosophers around her at the Palmyrene court. This narrative explores the legendary queen and charts the progression of her unequivocal declaration, not only of independence of Rome, but of supremacy.

This illustrated book offers a fascinating look at the life of the Roman soldier, drawing on Rome's rich historical record, to depictions in literature and art.

Caesar, Paperback (June 2007)» View all books by Pat Southern
Julius Caesar was born in 100 BC in Ancient Rome. After an unspectacular beginning, he was elected consul in 59 BC. It was his methods rather than his political programme that made men turn against him, and strike him down on the Ides of March 44 BC. This work tells the story of Rome's greatest leader.
