This is quite simply a list of royalties of Europe who were alive at any time between 1860 and 1918. Males and females are listed in separate posts, and the blog begins at the end of the alphabet so that eventually, when it is completed, it will read in alphabetical order. Where there are numerous royalties with the same first name, they are listed chronologically.
Occasional quotations or snippets of information about the royalties are are also included.
Where the Christian name begins with Marie or Maria, the person is often listed under the second part of her name (e.g. Marie Antoinette - had she lived in this period - would be listed under 'A' with 'Marie' written in brackets after Antoinette).
As the information is gathered from numerous sources, there might be irregularity of spelling the name according to the Anglicised, Germanic, French etc. etc. spelling. All the Karls/Carls/Charles for example are listed together.
As this is a work in progress, some of the dates etc. will be filled in later. As well as the list of names etc. various other lists will be included. Please use the search function to find specific people.
To celebrate the coming of Christmas and to thank all the kind people
who have purchased my books and sent me lovely emails during 2013, for
the next few days, I am creating a
kind of Advent Calendar, with a different offer each day.
Tomorrow, Sunday 1st
December, I am beginning with offering a FREE download to
Kindle of my new book: Alice, The Enigma. If you have a Kindle,
please feel free to help yourself to a copy!
(The offer applies only for one day so please don't forget to collect your copy!)
Please keep returning too, to this site to see the next day's offer!
Due to an error on my part, there was a mistake in my original upload of "Queen
Victoria's Granddaughters" on Kindle, which meant that an unproofed file was
uploaded. Consequently there were some glaring typing errors in copies purchased at the end of last week. The mistake has now been rectified.
apologise to readers who bought the book and in order to compensate for my
mistake, I have made the Kindle version of "Shattered Crowns: The Scapegoats"free to
everyone today, 24th February from midnight to midnight (Pacific
Time, I think!). This applies to Kindle throughout all countries.
