  1. I would choose Edward II, the Man by Stephen Spinks, Christian IV: Denmark's Great Renaissance King by Jens Gunni Busck, Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid (by the same author), and The Race to Save the Romanovs by Helen Rappaport, because the Medieval, Renaissance, and Modern are my favorite periods in royal history. 😉

  2. UPDATE: The publication date for the Crown Series books about Danish monarchs has been changed to August, according to, so I removed two books from the above list.
