Customer Review

on 20 February 2011
I must admit my knowledge of the early Hanoverian Kings was rather sketchy. Since the State or Electorate of Hanover was quite small I was surprised to learn how George I and II regarded themselves as autocratic rulers by divine right. Their unpopularity as rulers in England was not surprising. Tracy Borman has accumulated a wealth of detailed information. While her style of writing does not set the world on fire, nevertheless she creates an interesting picture of the period. So far as Henrietta Howard is concerned, Tracy Borman seems be riding the feminist horse rather more eagerly than one would have thought necessary. Women were chattel and many men were 'lords' in their own home.
