Hereditary rule once dominated European politics; a few families, all closely related and believing themselves divinely appointed, controlled the destinies of millions. Most of them were asked to leave -- sometimes politely, sometimes with a fatal abruptness. This book explains why.
The present-day vagaries, eccentricities and downright absurdities of the much-discussed Windsors are as nothing to the excesses of their predecessors and here you will find them all. Lovingly detailed and tempered with irreverence, here is the essential, secret royal history.Reseña del editor:
Hereditary rule once dominated European politics. A few families, believing in divine rule, controlled the destinies of millions before they were ousted. This book takes an irreverent look at the monarchs with disturbing passions, the empress of sex and the king into a peculiar form of bribery.
