Grandmama of Europe: The Crowned Descendants of Queen Victoria Audiobook

Grandmama of Europe: The Crowned Descendants of Queen Victoria

Author: Theo Aronson Narrator: Pearl Hewitt Release Date: April 2021

The family that shaped Europe's ruling classes in the twentieth century Although rarely documented as the warmest of monarchs and often criticized for her surly attitude to motherhood, Queen Victoria did successfully heir nine children. By the late nineteenth century, she had over thirty surviving grandchildren. Understanding the important role of marriage in upholding Britain's power and influence over Europe, Victoria inserted herself as somewhat of a royal matchmaker in her grandchildren's lives, recommending or despairing at their varied suitors. In this comprehensive delve into Victoria's offspring, Theo Aronson describes the intersection of cultures as princesses with British upbringings experienced the courts of Spain, Romania, Greece, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. He also explores how the queen's best intentions for royal diplomacy failed to prevent World War I but did, at least, have a significant influence on the absorption of British customs into other courts.

The King in Love: Edward VII's Mistresses Audiobook

The King in Love: Edward VII's Mistresses

Author: Theo Aronson Narrator: Shaun Grindell Release Date: August 2015

The King in Love is an all-embracing account of the loves of that celebrated royal womanizer, Edward VII, as Prince of Wales and King. It is also a study of the three women with whom the King was most deeply in love-his "official" mistresses, Lillie Langtry, Daisy Warwick, and Alice Keppel. Spanning three decades and packed with incident, scandal, and high romance, the story is set in the extravagant and hypocritical world of late Victorian and Edwardian society. It is full of colorful characters: Edward's beautiful and betrayed wife Alexandra; the three cuckolded husbands-Edward Langtry, the Earl of Warwick, and the Honorable George Keppel; the flamboyant Oscar Wilde; the sensuous Sarah Bernhardt; the dissipated Prince Albert Victor; and the sexually complex W. E. Gladstone. Royal biographer Theo Aronson draws on new and unfamiliar material in this vivid book and reassesses many aspects of his subjects' lives. He challenges long-established myths and reveals much that was hitherto unknown-not least the extraordinary scene that took place at the deathbed of King Edward VII. The result is a brilliant evocation of a world, and a way of life, that is gone forever.
