See it you can find Archduchess Maria Antonia of Austria (1669-1692)... Her ancesty looks bad...

Maria Antonia of Austria (1669-1692) 1 2 4 4 6 10 12 20 38 61 102 171

Those are her ancestors at each successive generation... 1 being herself, 2 her parents, 4 her grandparents and so on...
She isn't in the book, I will look elsewhere.

Sara, it has never been proved that either Diana or Sarah were insane. They had certain emotional problems, but these are far cry from out and out insanity!!
I believe that members of Diana's own family admitted even before her marraige that she was mentally unstable.

How about Ivan the Terrible. He killed his son in a fit of rage and had whole towns slaughtered. Some of the Ottoman Emperors were rather nuts as well. Ibrahim had his whole harem drowned during a fit of madness.

The danish king Christian VII was insane. However in history he is mostly remembered because of his wife and her love affair with the german Struensee.

I read the comments about prince Albert. He sired nine children. I&#39;m not sure how that appliance would have helped him to do it. It also says he was a public prude.

It&#39;s good to see the story of Emperor Norton I. San Francisco has had and continues to have a colorful history.

That is true and King George III had to sent a ship to rescue his sister Queen Caroline Matilda from the hands of her husband.

She died a short time later.

Here is an amusing one:

Mutesa I, King of Buganda, and an opportunistic savage. When Christian missionaries told him that his baptism was dependent on him giving up all but one of his 7,000 wives, he replied "Give me Queen Victoria&#39;s daughter for my wife and I will put away all my wives."

Diana may have been emotionally unstable, but emotional instability is not in the same league as insanity. Insanity is more severe. I do know that some of Diana&#39;s family wondered if she would be able to cope with all the pressures of royal life, and some doubted she would be strong enough to deal with it, but I have never read of a member of the Spencer family saying she was "unstable."
