With so many of the georgian princesses having the same names it would be easy to become confused but the inclusion of an easily followed family tree at the beginning of the book overcomes this.
The downside of this book is it's brevity. The author has covered over 150 years of history in 221 pages which means none of the characters are covered in any great depth.
This is a good book with which to obtain an overview of these women but if you want to make an in depth study of them, then this may not be the text for you.
It was however, even though hard to read very informative.
He treats his subjects with sympathy but is not afraid to point out their sometimes less than endearing qualities.
The downside of this book is it's brevity. The author is covering more than 150 years of history in a mere 221 pages. This left me with a feeling that the book is more of a 'taster' of the subject than a thorough biography.
I would recommend it as an introduction to the georgians but not as a definitive text.
female members of a royal family. Terribly confusing to sort out even this limited number of German principalities from which the C19 ENGLISH royal family recruited its spouses
