“Prince Nicholas wrote: ' If your house is broken into and plundered and finally set on fire by persons whom you considered to be your best friends, have the latter any right to call you a 'traitor' because, in despair, you opened your window and screamed for help?”
Julia P. Gelardi, Born to Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria

“One condemns the whole past as a time of ignorance and prejudice, while knowing nothing of that past and very little of the present.”
Julia P. Gelardi, In Triumph's Wake: Royal Mothers, Tragic Daughters, and the Price They Paid for Glory

Julia P. Gelardi, Born to Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria
