Book Description:

Danger and drama among the monarchs.

What would you do for absolute power? For many monarchs throughout history, it was a question that ruled their lives. Step into the world of palatial intrigue, where holding the throne means evading death... or causing it.

Some sovereigns were cunning at avoiding their killers. Cleopatra of Egypt once rolled herself into a rug and was carried out past her enemies' noses. Other royals were brutal when dealing with foes. VIad the Impaler's monstrous methods inspired the legend of Dracula the vampire.

From monarchs murdered at the hands of their subjects to kings killed on the battlefield, the stories of these ten royals are told:

  • Cleopatra of Egypt (69 BCE 30 BCE)
  • VIad III the lmpaler of Wallachia (1431 1476)
  • Richard III of England (1452 1485)
  • 'Bloody Mary' 1(1516 1558)
  • Mary, Queen of Scots (1542 1587)
  • Elizabeth I (1533 1603)
  • Louis XVI (1754 1793)
  • Marie Antoinette (1755 1793)
  • Elisabeth of Austria (1837 1898)
  • The Romanovs of Russia (1872 1918).

A final section offers examples from the 20th century from assassination attempts in England to a royal massacre in Nepal.

Blending dramatic storytelling and historical fact, and complete with fascinating photographs and artwork, Royal Murder is a compelling account of scheming sovereigns.
