Product description

Review

"Brilliantly entertaining… Richly detailed, impeccably researched… Written with a light touch and full of human sympathy… A landmark royal biography" (Anne Chisholm Sunday Telegraph)

"This is not only the best biography of King Edward VII; it’s also the best book about royalty ever published… Vivid, detailed and original" (Piers Brendon Independent)

"Paints the story of Edward VII and his long, hectic life as Prince of Wales in vivid colours: no scandal is left unturned, and yet the depth and authenticity of the research make it clear that this is a serious, even magesterial work" (Antonia Fraser Sunday Telegraph (Books of the Year))

"Hugely entertaining from first page to last... It is also scholarly and revealing" (Miriam Gross Evening Standard (Books of the Year))

"A model of how royal biographies should be written... impeccably researched, with much new material, balanced, sensible, disrespectful without being offensive, funny, and a vivid portrait of one of Britain’s most underrated and understudied monarchs" (Philip Ziegler Spectator (Books of the Year))

Book Description

An exciting new biography of Edward VII, the playboy prince who changed the monarchy, by prizewinning historian and biographer Jane Ridley.
