The Roman spa of Bath, revived as a fashionable resort in the eighteenth century, features briefly in SARUM, and at some length as the scene of a scandal involving Fanny Albion in THE FOREST. (See also Jane Austen).

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.
