The Queen’s Beasts app traces her Majesty’s ancestors over 900 years of UK Royals – including a printable timeline of the Monarchs and Houses – using heraldic beasts to trace their genealogy and history.
The Beast figures, the King’s Beasts, were developed by Henry VIII to cement the establishment of the houses of the new United Kingdom after his father, Henry VII, ended the brutal War of the Roses (Game of Thrones). To support her right to become the, now, longest reigning British monarch, the Queen’s Beasts were updated for her lineage and placed along the coronation procession of the young Queen Elisabeth II.
The Queen’s Beasts app features 25 screens detailing individuals in the lineage of Queen Elizabeth II – encompassing her entire genealogy from 1066 through the present.
A special feature of the Queen’s Beasts app is the Printable Interactive Timeline. Pictured above is the House of Tudor section of the Timeline. From the Interactive Timeline, you can click on any image to view that individual’s personal information screen. The Timeline is printable.
The Interactive Timeline incorporates music, art, text, and narration to enhance the user’s experience. An enjoyable way to learn the history of the Monarchs of Britain and the United Kingdom. This multi-sensory app has been created to appeal to general audiences as well as to meet the needs of students.

From TechReview Ninja: Have you ever wanted to learn more about the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II? Are you taking a class or working on a project where you need a solid reference of the royal lineage? If so, Queen’s Beasts is the app for you.
From the Academic App Store: Queens Beast’s app builds its content around the 10 heraldic statues commissioned at the beginning of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Each one has a meaning within the Queen’s ancestry and so together they are an original and useful way of representing one aspect of the history of Britain.
The app makes the most of this structure by using the heraldic beasts and who they represent to describe the passage of history that explains how Queen Elizabeth II came to be the head of state of the United Kingdom as well as some other countries.
