Drogheda

Cromwell's famous siege and massacre of Drogheda has often been misunderstood and misrepresented. Based on the best recent historical writing, Rutherfurd gives a historically balanced and blow-by-blow account of the drama and tragedy of that day, in the 'Drogheda' chapter of his second Irish book.

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.
