Spanning 500 years of British history, a revealing look at the
secret lives of some great (and not-so-great) Britons, courtesy of
one of the world's most engaging royal historians
Beleaguered by scandal, betrayed by faithless spouses, bedeviled
by ambitious children, the kings and queens of Great Britain have
been many things, but they have never been dull. Some sacrificed
everything for love, while others met a cruel fate at the edge of
an axman's blade. From the truth behind the supposed madness of
King George to Queen Victoria's surprisingly daring taste in
sculpture, " Behind the Palace Doors" ventures beyond the rumors to
tell the unvarnished history of Britain's monarchs, highlighting
the unique mix of tragedy, comedy, romance, heroism, and
incompetence that has made the British throne a seat of such
- stories covering every monarch, from randy Henry VIII to
reserved Elizabeth II
- historical myths debunked and surprising "Did you know . . . ?"
- four family trees spanning every royal house, from the Tudors to
"From the Trade Paperback edition."
