Author(s): Geoffrey Regan
From the emperors of Rome to the princes of the present-day House of Windsor, those of royal blood have not always behaved with dignity fitting of their regal standing. In Royal Blunders, Geoffrey Regan casts a jaundiced eye over the lapses, gaffes, and indiscretions of kings, queens, and kaisers. Discover which Hapsburg emperor retired to a monastery for a quiet life and ended up eating himself to death. Learn which of Edward VII's sons was suspected of being Jack the Ripper. Read about the medieval French monarch who was utterly convinced that he was made of glass and the prince who confessed his marital infidelity on television.
