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.… (mere)

Quick easy to read chapters. Witty comments on the bad behavior of the royals and popes through history. It includes family trees and timelines to help see where things fit in time. ( )

really good till we got to popes. found the popes quite sickening.

Those naughty, naughty, naughty royals! I always knew that rank excess was a recipe for disaster, but these little vinettes have been a real eye-opener. At the end, I realized that I am very, very glad never to have been born a royal. My life-expectancy would have been severely diminished.......thanks mostly to my own family.

A very enjoyable little book; I am looking forward to reading more of its ilk from the same author (this was his first one). No history knowledge is necessary for enjoyment, yet to will conclude the book with some of it. ( )
