Thank you for your kind response, it give me more confidence to start straight away. Just received my latest pictorial book with beautiful old photos in german/english, the title is
"Das Furstliche Haus Hohenzollern", not cheap but worth it, it came from a Swedish royal book dealer Rosvall royal books, I have bought at least 20 photo books from Rosvall about different european royal houses through the five years period. Keep in touch.

I'm kind of late to the party but a warm welcome to you, Ronald Biver! With your extensive book list and knowledge of historical royal families, I'm sure you're going to be a huge asset to the various threads that discuss these people.

I'm impressed by your book list. I thought I was a huge collector of books but I realize I have a long way to go to catch up to you (which I think is a very good goal to have in life). I also want to pass on a tip. Sometimes when you're looking for a book, its hard to find them at the normal booksellers. I've found quite a few books for relatively cheap (they're used or were library books) at abebooks.com. I've even received quite a few books that have been signed by the author (although I'd have to change my name to pass it as being signed for me).

I hope you're finding The Royal Forums to be as interesting and informative as I do.

Hello there, did received your message, how many books have you got so far? Is it all about British & European royal houses or any favorite royal family? I love the Dutch royal
family & have a few historical & recent books about them, even a beautiful color book about opening of the Dutch parliament & of course my next favorites are the European houses including the minor royals & then the British & aristocratic family related to queen Victoria.Of course books of the rest of the world including a rare book about the historical Hawaiian royal family, also 3 European books signed by Arturo E Beeche, he has several books on royal families of Europe, have you heard of him? This is all about my collection of royal books and thank you for your interest of my collection, tell me next time about your book collection? Keep in touch!

Ronald

Royal books that I have are mainly biographies of members of the British royal family in recent times. I'm nowhere near close to having the amount that you do when it comes to royalty related books but I do love the ones I have. If you really want an extensive biography on Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, William Shawcross has the best one available IMO. I also had to apologize to Martin, our diligent mailman, that had to tote this book around. I got the hard cover edition and this book ranks as the thickest and the heaviest book I have in my collection to date.

As far as European royalty goes, I've one book that covers a lot of the WWI era and how it affected royal houses called King, Kaiser, Tsar: Three Royal Cousins Who Led the World to War by Catrine Clay. Very interesting book. Other than a biography of Princess Grace of Monaco, my library is lacking in European royalty books.

My main interest is in ancient civilizations and the people. How they lived, what they believed and what has passed down to us today. The further back in history I go, the more into the past before that I want to go. Its grand being an armchair time traveler.

Ronald, It is grand that you have several books on Empress Elisabeth. She is an impressive lady to have so many books written about her.

I also collect books and magazines about royalty. I'm a fan of European royalty. There are some books that I look for and still have not found them, especially a book about the last King of Portugal.

I did a bit of checking for you, Blog Real, and did find one book but the downside of it is that it is horrendously expensive. At least it is to me. The book is Dom Manuel II: The Last King of Portugal: His Life and Reign by Malcolm Howe. Here's where you can find it.
