Additional Info

The history of the Windsors are the history of the last two hundred years of monarchy in Britain as seen through the prism of the fate of sitting on a throne or related to the royal family characters - people extremely intelligent or mediocre, piercing and limited, impressive regal dignity or funny. Scandals, more or less covered up, as it turns out, were an integral part of the life of the royal court, which still maintains the atmosphere of moral hypocrisy. The tragic death of Diana was fine to chronicle the last home of Windsor, dark card.

Detailed, but not overwhelming story of the royal family, which each member had a distinct personality and its own definition of the word "monarchy". The book will appeal to lovers of history, but that told of no scientific puffed up. Dynasty Windsors is shown from the perspective of a more psychological, we have a chance to learn a lot about what kind of people were the rulers and powers in the UK, and fulfill their roles - not only social, but also as parents, siblings, lovers. Written swift, interesting language book can become a friend to many autumn evenings.
