Ashdown, Dulcie M.
The author finds amusement and humanity in the history of amourous royal life, which she attributes in large part to arranged, loveless marriages combined with monarchical power. From William the Conqueror's illegitimacy to Edward VIII and Mrs Simpson, this survey of royal affairs covers over 900 years of British history. No jacket, foxing.
