Kings, Queens and The Sordid In-Between
A historical kaleidoscope covering misogyny and all sorts of misconduct and naughtiness in any number of noble circles. This book contains a number of illustrative instances selected from royal families from around the world, all viewed from the mischievous perspective of an ordinary bloke. The tales are portrayed in a satirical manner and the depiction of the particular cases is focused on the more 'spicy' aspects of the happenings rather than on the historical importance of the events. * Featuring garish tales from the lives of King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, George I and Queen Margot of France. * Tongue-in-cheek humour/satire. * Full of quips, trivia and little-known facts about the monarchy and other royal families from around Europe.
