As the author, I am 100% biased, but I would love to hear what people think about the idea of my book (or the book itself) if they purchase it or read it FREE on Kindle. The book is an overall defense of the Middle Ages, focusing on its political systems (Kingship) while critiquing modernity and democracy.

I only found out quite recently that the Anglo-saxons treated monarchy different to the Normans.

The Witan retained the traditional right to elect monarchs from within the royal house, not always choosing the eldest son.

The Normans did not have this.

It was discussed in the following video:

Father time has an undefeated record.

But when he's dumb and no more here,
Nineteen hundred years or near,
Clau-Clau-Claudius shall speak clear.
