Mighty monarchs, powerful presidents, legendary leaders…discover more than 100 true stories of magnificent men who changed the world.

They’re kings wielding scepters and sitting on thrones, they’re revolutionaries on the front lines of change, they’re presidents and prime ministers leading their nations, or they’re CEOs, scientists, sports legends, and artists who rose to the top of their fields. Welcome to The Book of Kings, where being a mighty monarch doesn’t just mean wearing a crown. Leaders like these come from all over the globe and have different talents. But most of all? They rule!

Kids are sure to enjoy meeting these mighty men. Some wielded their might for good while others let their power go to their heads. Yet all are (or were) powerful people who changed the course of history. From Henry VIII to Steve Jobs to Lin-Manuel Miranda, and more, every regal ruler in this book showcases the kind of guts, smarts, and strength it takes to lead. And while there are some kings who you might recognize, others may leave you wondering why so many brave, smart, and hardworking people have gone unnoticed…until now. Whether real-life royals or average Joes who rose to rule, get ready to be inspired by their stories.

“…This gathering of glitterati covers not just historical heads of state from Akbar to Shaka Zulu, but also fictional ones such as T'Challa of Wakanda… said roster also shows commendable racial and geographic diversity—and even includes queens and other notable women in frequent sidebars… the bright colors and graphics, as well as a plethora of photos, period images, and fanciful but realistically modeled modern portraits, provide plenty of life and visual energy.”” — Kirkus
