The British Monarchy

Initial Release: November 2009
Latest update: v1.0.13, October 2011

Ok, I have to admit something...I'm an Anglophile. Maybe that's not the right word here since 
I'm actually more a fan of the UK (that's the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland 
thank you very much!) And what is the best symbol of Britain (at least one of them)? Why The Monarchy 
of course. I think what I find most fascinating is a family that can trace its line back for over 1,000 

So I give to you this Android version of the Official History of the British Monarchy. This is a 
self-contained version of the website maintained by The Royal Household.<br><br>


Latest News:

Just like with the Constitution app, I didn't see the problem with the screen formatting and navigation on tables and phones without trackballs or D-pads. This has been corrected and the active installs and showing improvement. I still hope to one day figure out how to add pictures.


This application can be found in the Android Marketplace under "Books & Reference".
