    Think you know your kings and queens? Think again. Taking us right back to King Arthur (spoiler: he didn’t exist), Unruly tells the founding story of post-Roman England up to the reign of Elizabeth I (spoiler: she dies).

    It’s a tale of narcissists, inadequate self-control, excessive beheadings, middle-management insurrection, uncivil wars, and at least one total Cnut. How this happened, who it happened to and why it matters in modern Britain are all questions David Mitchell answers with brilliance, wit and the full erudition of a man who once studied history – and won’t let it off the hook for the mess it’s made.
