This book is full of salacious tidbits about kings and queens from history who did, to put it lightly, strange things! It isn't a scholarly tome, it just has a few short pages for each monarch. If you want to know some of the more interesting parts of European history, then this book is for you! But, it is very small. That was alright with me, though, because I got for $1.24 on clearance at Amazon!
