The Great Survivors : How Monarchy Made it into the Twenty-First Century Paperback
At a time when Western society appears to be demanding more equality and democracy, people's fascination with monarchies shows no signs of waning.
Taking the reader on a journey between past and present, into a world populated by great celebrities such as Wallis Simpson, Grace Kelly and Princess Diana, as well as lesser-known and slightly murkier aristocratic figures, The Great Survivors analyses the reasons behind this anachronistic paradox by looking at the history of the main European dynasties and providing a keyhole glimpse into their world, their lives and their secrets.
