From Nero's nagging mother (whom he found especially annoying after taking her as his lover) to Catherine's stable of studs (not of the equine variety), here is a wickedly delightful look at the most scandalous royal doings you never learned about in history class.
Gleeful, naughty, sometimes perverted-like so many of the crowned heads themselves-A Treasury of Royal Scandals presents the best (the worst?) of royal misbehavior through the ages. From ancient Rome to Edwardian England, from the lavish rooms of Versailles to the dankest corners of the Bastille, the great royals of Europe have excelled at savage parenting, deadly rivalry, pathological lust, and meeting death with the utmost indignity-or just very bad luck.

Love this book!
If you don't like history I promise you will have a different outlook reading this. The scandals are the most intriguing about history period! Definitely a good read!
OMG So hilarious.
I literally cracked up while reading some of these tales. They're true, I think. History records a lot of the stories in this book, just not in quite the same way. But trust me, this book is much funnier. You won't look at another royal in the same way.
Well researched and very entertaining.
