Sinopsis: Spanning 500 years of British history, a revealing look at the secret lives of some great (and not-so-great) Britons, courtesy of one of the world?s most engaging royal historians
Beleaguered by scandal, betrayed by faithless spouses, bedeviled by ambitious children, the kings and queens of Great Britain have been many things, but they have never been dull. Some sacrificed everything for love, while others met a cruel fate at the edge of an axman?s blade. From the truth behind the supposed madness of King George to Queen Victoria?s surprisingly daring taste in sculpture, Behind the Palace Doors ventures beyond the rumors to tell the unvarnished history of Britain?s monarchs, highlighting the unique mix of tragedy, comedy, romance, heroism, and incompetence that has made the British throne a seat of such unparalleled fascination.
? stories covering every monarch, from randy Henry VIII to reserved Elizabeth II
? historical myths debunked and surprising ?Did you know . . . ?? anecdotes
? four family trees spanning every royal house, from the Tudors to the Windsors
