Un-sneak peek: January 2013 new royalty books


Last month I didn't have time to post a sneak peek at January's new royalty books, but several of the books listed below won't be published for a few days/weeks yet, so this is still sort of a sneak peek…

Dressing the Queen: The Jubilee Wardrobe by Angela Kelly. The author is the dresser and personal assistant of Queen Elizabeth II.

Edward the Confessor, King of England by Peter Rex. Biography. Often portrayed as a simpleton, Edward was in fact wily and devious.

The Kings & Queens of Wales by Timothy Venning. About the kings and queens of Welsh states.

The Tudors by Richard Rex. The public and private lives of the Tudor monarchs. Includes 140 illustrations.

The Social and Economic Origins of Monarchy in Jordan by Tariq Moraiwed Tell. The resilience and power of the Hashemite monarchy under Ottoman, British, and post-colonial Hashemite rule.

The Queen of Sheba by Deborah M. Coulter-Harris. The Queen of Sheba in literature, legend, and lore.

The Forgotten Queen by D.L. Bogdan. Novel about Margaret Tudor, daughter of Henry VII, who married King James IV of Scotland.

For the full list of new royalty books, visit the Royalty.nu Books page.

If I could read only one of the books listed above, I'd have to go with the biography of Edward the Confessor because I can't resist biographies, but I suspect most people would pick Dressing the Queen. Which book would you choose?

  1. If I had room on my shelves I would go for Dressing the Queen, love reading about royal fashion and style. Probably will buy it eventually. Bought too many books lately so this might have to wait.

  2. I have "Diana: Her Life in Fashion" and love it even though I don't read many books about fashion. So I'd like to read "Dressing the Queen," too.

  3. I would love everyone to read my new Sheba book — very different from any other book on the same topic.

  4. I would like to read the book, "Dressing the Queen"-I find that I cannot access it. There used to be a lot of mags on "royals" and they were very easy to get, now they are not? I used to read one, once a month. There is actually very little information on this site.

  5. Hi, Jennifer. If the link for "Dressing the Queen" wasn't working, I don't know why – it seems to be OK now. Here it is again: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1905686749/ref=nosim/?tag=royaltyblog-20

    You can find links to the official sites for Majesty and Royalty magazines here: http://www.royalty.nu/shop/magazines.html

    This blog is just a companion to the main World of Royalty site, where you'll find much more info about royalty. It is at http://www.royalty.nu/
