Summary
Completed in 1136, this is the story of the realm from its supposed foundation by Brutus to the Saxons some 2000 years later. Vividly portraying legendary and semi-legendary figures such as Lear, Cymbeline, Merlin and King Arthur it is as much myth as it is history but it captured the imagination of subsequent generations
