Crowned in a far Country
“Crowned in a Far Country” tells the story of eight princesses who made political marriages at the behest of the king. As such they had the potential for tremendous influence in many areas; domestic, artistic and cultural, fashion, gardening, child-rearing, food, and interior design. This fascinating book explores how the king’s official mistress held even more sway than the Queen over the lives of the courtiers and the populace.
“This thin volume actually had a several photographs of european royalty I’d never seen before! So was very interesting! And while I was familiar with most of the histories, it still brought to light several tidbits. It ended up being far better than I’d hoped!” Kent L. Hedrick
