Take an obsessive and scandalous romance, add a generous dollop of melodrama and a touch of irony, top it off with tragedy, and you have a tasty historical treat to kick off your summer reading adventure. Princess Louise, daughter of the King Leopold II of Belgium, loves cavalry officer Géza Mattachich at first sight and leaves her husband for him, scandalizing Viennese society and landing them both in lockup before the tale ends. Based in part on the memoirs of the real-life couple, this is an ...more

Stopped reading about halfway. Quite interesting story though, but written in tabloid/gossip magazine style which was very tiring.

I'm really sorry for what I am about to do, I am not the typical hormonal reader who appreciates trolling authors whenever some novel upsets her (and yet, here we are).

However, how can I help myself from advertising you naïve folks who, just like me, would buy this expensive piece of scroll longing for a Time Travel to early 1900's European 'Belle Époque' against doing so. This novel is so, SO BADLY WRITTEN one cannot read more than 50 pages on a flow. Its style is greasy, heavy and there are s

Louise was the daughter of Leopold II of Belgium, wife of Philip of Saxe-Coburg (known in Vienna as Fatso), sister in law of the King of Bulgaria, sister of Stephanie (widow of Crown Prince Rudolph), so when she took up with a thoroughly unsuitable Croatian uhlan (as opposed to some quiet affair everyone could stomach), things hit the fan. They circled Europe's increasingly dingy spa towns, burning through truly extraordinary sums of ill-gotten Belgian Congolese money until the family cut her of ...more

Not something I would normally choose to read - I was given this book. It is a novel that is about a fascinating historical situation, a married Belgium Princess of the Hapsburg court succumbing to the charms of a commoner and abandoning her position for him. Basically it's a historical biography based on real events with the details reimagined. So it is a fiction work that reads quite like a biography, quite unusual. The historical context is interesting but I found that it felt quite distanced ...more

A novel based on the liaison of Louise, daughter of King Leopoldo II of Belgium, married to a prince and Geza Mattachich, a soldier. The novel read like a soap opera. These two people had no clue about money and common sense. They did whatever they wanted without thinking there could be consequences. A fun read but not a must.

Very interesting story about Princess Louise of Belgium's love affair with Count Geza Mattachich.
I enjoyed parts of this book but found it difficult to get into.
