A Treasury of Royal Scandals - by Michael Farquhar

A Treasury of Royal Scandals - by Michael Farquhar Biographies Famous People Social Studies World History Visual Arts

Mark Twain had his character, Huck Finn, make an interesting statement:

All I say is, kings is kings and you got to make allowances.

That statement more-than rings true in this book which reduces "royalty" to the normal status of "human beings" (despite their otherwise lofty stature).

Featured, among many other topics, are the vagaries of Russian royalty (like Ivan IV).
