Book Description

28 Oct 2011
Looking at fifteen different royal figures who went into exile, this volume discusses the role of exiled monarchs in domestic politics, in the state system in Europe and in the dynastic networks which transcended national frontiers. From the Jacobite diaspora and the French royalist émigrés, to the German monarchists who hoped to install the Bavarian Crown Prince as German Emperor after the First World War, the absent monarch remained a focus of opposition, loyalism and patriotism. For the first time, monarchical exile is understood as a socio-political constellation that transformed society and not as personal fate or failure without further historical relevance.
