Yale English Monarchs series

The Yale English Monarchs series is a series of biographies on English and British kings and queens, published by Yale University Press. The books are written by some of the leading experts within their respective fields, incorporating the latest historical research. Several books in the English Monarchs series have previously also been published by the University of California Press, though the series is today in the hands of Yale University Press. A volume for Alfred the Great was in preparation by Dorothy Whitelock, who died before the work was completed. It has never been published.
