Postcards of Lost Royals

£3.99

Available in Stock

Beginning with a photograph of the future Edward VIII posing with his great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, this intriguing collection of postcards tells the stories of royals who lost their thrones - and sometimes, like Tsar Nicholas II and Maximilian I of Mexico, their lives - through revolution, war, the abolition of monarchies or abdication during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Part of a series surveying 20th century history, political iconography and propaganda through contemporary images, these 50 postcards are reproduced, with short commentaries, from originals in the John Fraser Collection at the Bodleian Library.
