The Best of Historical Fiction and Non-Fiction
The Lost King of France: The Tragic Story of Marie-Antoinette's Favourite Son
"Possibly the best piece of historical non-fiction I've ever read. It's haunting, chilling and utterly absorbing."
Gone with the Wind
"This is simply my favourite book EVER! 'Gone with the Wind' lives up to the hyperbole. It earns its position as a literary classic."
Nicholas & Alexandra
"An emotive personal examination of one of Europe's most tragic royal families. Unputdownable!"
The Secret Diary Of Anne Boleyn
"A highly empathetic fictitious look at a truly inspirational woman and queen and the perfect antidote to 'The Other Boleyn Girl!'"
Marie Antoinette: The Journey
"One of Antonia Fraser's best biographies, and it certainly clears away some of the more unfortunate rumours about Marie-Antoinette."
"An eerie ghost-story that looks at the greed and danger that lies at the heart not only of Modern Hollywood but also the corruption of the silent movie era. History with a heavy mythical bent."
Divorced, Beheaded, Survived: A Feminist Reinterpretation Of The Wives Of Henry Viii
"A fascinating take on the oft-told story of Henry's six queens."
"A gory and exciting look at the fall of the Egyptian Middle Kingdom. Action-adventure meets historical literature."
The Fall of the French Monarchy: Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and the: Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and the Baron De Breteuil
"Award-winning, it cetainly gets under the skin of the French royal family and the monarchy's collapse in 1792."
The Memoirs of Cleopatra
"A supremely readable and epic tale of the famous Cleopatra's life told in the first person."
The Most Beautiful Woman in the World: The Obsessions, Passions and Courage of Elizabeth Taylor
"A light but enjoyable look at the life of the screen goddess."
A Night to Remember - Titanic
"A classic of historical faction, even after half a century it's still the defining book for many on the 'Titanic' disaster."
"Looking at the entire Romanov family from the life of Alexander II until long after the revolution, this book is a must for all royal history fans."
Royal Merry-go-round: The Story of Louis XV
"Even years after I first read it, this story (despite being slightly to sympathetic to its leading character) is a fantastic read. The women in Louis's life come out particularly well!"
Wilful Murder: The Sinking of the Lusitania
"A fantastic and emotional look at the 'Lusitania' and her role in modern history."
The Autobiography Of Henry VIII
"Another of Ms George's historical epics, told through the eyes of a royal monster."
Anne Of The Thousand Days [VHS]
"Now, into films. This is one of the finest historical movies of all time. Genevieve Bujold and Richard Burton turn in stellar performances!"
A Night to Remember / The Making of a Night to Remember [DVD] 
"Another historical classic, which like the book it's based on, has stood the test of time."
Elizabeth R: Part 3 [VHS]
"The acting in this, particularly from Glenda Jackson, compliments the splendid historical research and makes this series unmissable!"
The Six Wives Of Henry VIII: Anne Of Cleves [VHS] 
"Another BBC drama, probably the finest in the series, that looks at the life of one of England's less well-known queens."
The Lost Prince [VHS] 
"Beautifully made, directed and presented. 'The Lost Prince' is a fabulous and objective look into the golden age of European royalty told through the eyes of a sick and ailing child."
Cleopatra (3 Disc Special Edition)  [DVD]
"Lavish and stunning 1969 film that treats the famed Egyptian monarch with the respect she undoubtedly deserves. Brilliant performances from Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison."
Henry VIII [DVD] 
"Recently shown on ITV, this drama is racy, sexy and the performances of Ray Winstone, Helena Bonham-Carter, David Suchet, Emilia Fox and Emily Blunt are all fantastic!"
Gone with the Wind [DVD] 
"Like the book, the movie is a MUST."
"A fantastic look at a story of ambition, deceit and redemption in the "Ole South.""
