Ascendancy

This word has been applied to the period of Protestant British domination of Ireland from the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 until the end of the Victorian era. The story of this period is found in the second book of Rutherfurd's Irish saga, from the 'Ascendancy' chapter onwards.

The award for shortest reign in history goes to…Louis-Antoine Duke of Angoulême of France ! Louis XIX ruled for approximately 20 minutes – the time between when his father Charles X of France signed abdication papers in 1830 and the moment he too wielded a quill, signing away his rights to the throne.
