About the book:

Behind immense, ruined cities, and abandoned artworks deep in the rainforests of Central America lie the turbulent stories of the Maya monarchy. This text examines 11 of the most important Maya kingdoms, and provides biographical accounts of the 152 kings and 4 ruling queens. The authors set out the latest thinking on the nature of Maya divine kingship, statehood, and political authority, and describe recent readings and archaeological finds. All royal names are spelt out in hieroglyphs, and datafiles listing lineage, spouses and children, and place of burial are included.
