Royal bestsellers: January & February 2015

Over the years I've noticed that World of Royalty visitors particularly like new books about European royal history and 19th and 20th century British royals. As you can see, that held true in the first two months of this year!


Matriarch: Queen Mary and the House of Windsor by Anne Edwards. Biography of Princess May of Teck. Born into a family of impoverished nobility, she became queen, mother of two kings, and a symbol of British majesty.


Queen Victoria's Grandsons (1859-1918) by Christina Croft. Born into eight very different families, Queen Victoria's grandsons were connected through the queen.


The Accidental Empress by Allison Pataki. Fiction. Fifteen-year-old Sisi travels to the Habsburg Court with her older sister, who is betrothed to the young emperor, but Franz Joseph decides to marry Sisi instead.


The Kaisers by Theo Aronson. A study of the comet-like rise and fall of the German imperial House of Hohenzollern.


The Queen's Houses by Alan Titchmarsh. Takes readers on a tour of British royal residences and tells the personal family stories behind them. Illustrated.

This list is based on sales made through the website and the Royal News Blog (which you're reading right now).
