High in his hall th' undaunted monarch stands, And shakes his scepter, and their rage commands; Which did he not, their unresisted sway Would sweep the world before them in their way; Earth, air, and seas thro' empty space would roll, And heav'n would fly before the driving soul.

 Amazon.com: The Last English King: Books: Julian Rathbone   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)

The title "the last English king" is quite doubtful: In the battle with Hastings (1066) the last anglo-saxon king Harold Godwinson fell.
