Continuum History

My three linked-novels, A Dangerous Energy, To Build Jerusalem and The Two Confessions [henceforth ADE, TBJ and TTC respectively] are set within, I trust, an internally consistent altered time-line. For reasons too implausible and complex to explain, I christened the thing Continuum History. Herewith, for what it's worth, it is, as gleaned from the books.

It is divided into the following sections:

Continuum: England/British Isles
Amended English Regnal List
Continuum: World
People and Personalities
Places and Peoples/Races

Any mistakes you may think you perceive are the result of typing errors or duff info from - other - negligent historians.
