Description

From Elizabethan England to the court of the last Tsar, from a maharaja's palace to the place that Hawaii's last queen was imprisoned, the stories in this book weave a rich historical tapestry. Read fabulous stories of golden coaches, magnificent palaces and glittering balls, of royal lives of privilege, opulence and adulations--and secrets of betrayal, treachery and revolution. Twelve royal stories that prove to be more spellbinding than any fairy tale.
