The Pocket Guide to Royal Scandals
Available in Stock
The 8th century Emperor Ming Huang's 40,000 concubines, Vlad the Impaler's appalling cruelties, Henry VIII's wives, a naked paraglider landing on the roof of Buckingham Palace ... Putting the widest possible interpretation on 'scandal', the Pocket Guide is a concise chronicle of royal and imperial bad behaviour. The chronological listing of murder, mayhem, adultery and cheating at cards is followed by a miscellany of royal facts, including misdemeanours immortalized in nursery rhymes.
