Julia P. Gelardi, In Triumph's Wake: Royal Mothers, Tragic Daughters, and the Price They Paid for Glory

own desires and wishes have to be fitted in with what we can do more often than what we desire to do'.”
Julia P. Gelardi, Born to Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria

“I don't mind whether a person is rich or poor. Once my friend, always my friend.
--Tsarina Alexandra of Russia (1872-1918)”
