Bourbon-Orleans: A Family Album
Bourbon-Orleans: A Family Album
by Prince Michael of Greece
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars History of Bourbon Orleans family 19th century, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of the photographs is excellent ,be they only in black and white as befits the period.

It is not dominated as one reviewer hinted at , by the mother of Prince Michael of Greece(the author) but covers many
more royal families of europe, including Spain, Belgium and Denmark, when the Orleans or Bourbons inter-married with their familes.

I cannot understand why I delayed so long in ordering this book as it is not only full of wonderful unpublished photographs but has a very detailed family tree and the commentary very entertaining as I have come to expect of Prince Michael.

5.0 out of 5 stars Queens Diamonds, 21 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Queen's Diamonds (Hardcover)
This has to be the best Royal Book I've bought in over 30 years of collecting.
It is lavish, extremely good quality and fantastic detail, all the various pieces of jewelry beautifully cross-referenced .
I cannot say enough to encourage prospective buyers and here at Amazon at a bargain price; I have seen it advertised at over 70 pounds new.
Don't miss out, buy it now, you won't regret it.
It sets out the collection of diamonds, tiaras, necklaces, brooches from Queen Charlotte up to Queen Elizabeth 2.
