9780099575443: Bertie: A Life of Edward VII
Críticas:

"Brilliantly entertaining. Richly detailed, impeccably researched. Written with a light touch and full of human sympathy. A landmark royal biography" (Anne Chisholm Sunday Telegraph)

"This is not only the best biography of King Edward VII; it's also the best book about royalty ever published. Vivid, detailed and original" (Piers Brendon Independent)

"Paints the story of Edward VII and his long, hectic life as Prince of Wales in vivid colours: no scandal is left unturned, and yet the depth and authenticity of the research make it clear that this is a serious, even magesterial work" (Antonia Fraser Sunday Telegraph (Books of the Year))

"Hugely entertaining from first page to last... It is also scholarly and revealing" (Miriam Gross Evening Standard (Books of the Year))

"A model of how royal biographies should be written... impeccably researched, with much new material, balanced, sensible, disrespectful without being offensive, funny, and a vivid portrait of one of Britain's most underrated and understudied monarchs" (Philip Ziegler Spectator (Books of the Year))

Reseña del editor:

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

SHORTLISTED FOR THE DUFF COOPER PRIZE

Edward VII, who gave his name to the Edwardian era but was always known as Bertie, was fifty-nine when he finally came to power and ushered out the Victorian age. The eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Bertie was bullied by both his parents. Denied any proper responsibilities, the heir to the throne spent his time eating (which earned him the nickname 'Tum Tum'), pursuing women (which Queen Victoria held to be the reason for Albert's early demise), gambling, going to house parties and race meetings, and shooting pheasants. His arranged marriage to the stunning Danish princess Alexandra gave him access to the European dynastic network; but his name was linked with many beauties, including Lillie Langtry and Winston Churchill's mother. This magnificent new biography provides new insight into the playboy prince while painting a vivid portrait of the age in all its excess and eccentricity.
