European Royalty: Bibliograpy

There is a vast body of literature on European royalty. The focus of course is on their adult lives and acgievements. Many European families by the 19th Centurty, however, were becoming figureheads or at least much less possible. As a result, many of the available books on the later royals have become rather like the modern press. Many of the books do not go into great detail about the lives of the many princess and princes. There is, however, ome treatment of their childhood, including interesting photoplates in some cases.

Some of the interesting books include:
