Sneak peek at January 2021 new royalty books

Merry Christmas and happy almost-New Year! I suspect few of us will be sorry to say goodbye to 2020. Here's a sneak peek at some of the new books publishers have planned for us in the New Year.

Hermine, an Empress in Exile by Moniek Bloks. The story of German emperor Wilhelm II's second wife.

The Son King by Madawi Al-Rasheed. A critical look at Saudi Arabia's crown prince, Muhammad bin Salman.

The Crown in Crisis by Alexander Larman. A day-by-day narrative of abdication of King Edward VIII.

Power and Pleasure by Hugh M. Thomas. Court life under England's King John, 1199-1216.

Royal Greenwich by Pieter Van Der Merwe. An illustrated history starting in the mid-15th century, when Greenwich was a sprawling Tudor palace.

Making and Unmaking the Carolingians: 751-888 by Stuart Airlie. Ruling the Frankish realm, the family of Charlemagne had to be ruthless.

Pocahontas and the English Boys by Karen Ordahl Kupperman. The story of four 17th century young people, English and Powhatan, caught between cultures in early Virginia.

As always, publication dates are subject to change. The full list of new royalty books for January will be published on the Books page on New Year's Day. And you can go over there right now to see the November and December new book lists.

If I could read only one of the books listed above, I would pick Pocahontas and the English Boys. I recently saw an interesting television documentary about Pocahontas, and would like to learn more about her life. Which book would you choose?
