Private Lives of the Monarchs

Their stately portraits hang in museums across the globe, and their collective impact on history fills tens of thousands of textbooks. But what do we really know about these royal figures? We delve beneath the public lives of monarchs such as Queen Victoria, King Louis XIV, and Henry VIII to shine a light on their private lives. By eschewing dates and diplomacy for foibles and fetishes, we reveal the real-life human beings behind the pomp and pageantry.
