Born To Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Born To Rule: Five Reigning Consorts, Granddaughters of Queen Victoria

The book chronicles the lives of five extraordinary granddaughters of England's Queen Victoria who each became queen of a nation. The rich historical details bring to life the childhoods, spectacular marriages, and subsequent reigns of Maud of Norway, Sophie of Greece, Marie of Roumania, Victoria Eugenie of Spain, and Alexandra of Russia.

Queen Maud to her great surprise found herself the queen of a newly-independent nation and lived a happy and uncomplicated life. Queen Sophie was tormented by both her brother the Kaiser of Germany and also by the Allies during World War I, and saw her family overthrown and exiled twice. The dazzling Queen Marie was famous not only for her charm and romantic liaisons but also for the steely strength and brilliance which guided her country through the war. Queen Victoria Eugenie, unloved by her subjects and forever blamed by her husband for introducing hemophilia into the Spanish royal family, ended her reign when she too was ultimately forced into exile with her family. Tsarina Alexandra was known for her deep love for her husband and children up until their untimely ends at the hands of Russian revolutionaries.
