On with their heads!

As I've mentioned before, I'm tired of seeing headless women on royal book covers, and so is Mandy from The Royal Representative: Royal book cover review

I thought maybe I should occasionally post current royalty book covers featuring women with heads. However, the headless/faceless trend is so prevalent that I'm having trouble finding popular-history books or historical novels with covers that don't look like this:


The cover of Sandra Gulland's novel Mistress of the Sun, about Louis XIV's mistress Louise de la Valliére, does show the heroine from the neck up. Quite a novelty these days.
