Book DescriptionAt 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.
Editorial ReviewA book which has something to say, and which is entertainingly presented.' A.N. Wilson, The Spectator 'Hugely enjoyable and readable book... The Great Survivors is packed with so many revealing facts and amusing stories.' The Sunday Times
