Some very interesting stories here that you have not heard 8 Jan 2014
By LD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was originally written in 1981 so it is dated. But it tells the story of what happened to 10 royal families during the 20th century and particularly WWII. These kings and queens managed to retain their thrones up to the writing of the book and their personal stories will surprise you. There are characters to admire, some to feel sorry for, and others to despise. Many abdicated and the whys are quite different. You will come to know the personality of those discussed which makes them more human. While some had scandals, it is the daily lives of these people that give you a perspective that you don’t read about elsewhere. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this book.

These are the countries and chapters of the book: England, Monaco, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein.
