Hohenzollern: Tragic Private Lives
The tragic life of Diana, Princess of Wales, mesmerized the world throughout the 1990s. Yet her story just continues a tragic theme within the Royal Families of Europe which has run forever. Marriages arranged to forge political alliances, to gain more territory and influence, and not for love, almost always had tragic consequences. Such alliances, in a political power sense, were so successful they led to the formation of the borders of modern day Europe. Sadly, the resultant immense personal tragedies were never allowed to get in the way, as each Royal Family made its way along the road to glory and wealth beyond imagination. This book explains what happened during the 17th and 18th centuries in Northern Germany, within the families that came to rule Great Britain and Germany.
