Books - Revolution, Monarchist Movements

Can anyone recommend books (English preferred, but I will try to struggle through some German) on the Revolution in the various German states, the lives of the royals after the revolution, and post-revolution monarchist movements in Germany and Austria? Thank you.

"The Coburg Conspiracy: Royal Plots and Manoeuvres" by Richard Sotnik 2010

The Coburg Conspiracy: Royal Plots and Manoeuvres by Richard Sotnick tells the story about the forebears of England's royal family -- the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family. The cast of characters revealed in the book were like those characters in a modern Soap. It tells about the Coburg's Duchess Luise, Prince Albert's mother who was exiled for life and forebidden to see her children again; cold unfaithful husbands, as well as scheming stepmothers and even a James Hewitt of that time. Duchess Luise can be likened to Princess Diana of her age.

The book was written with great research into a legacy of dysfunction and treachery that may still persist today. It's a history and detective story-in-one.

This is the first time I've heard about this book and the author. Is it really based on facts from the author's research?

At one time, Richard Sotnick spoke at Hatchards. The author taught himself German in order to study firsthand some of the family documents that were mostly written in original German. The book is a good read especially for the detective in us. It's like trying to piece together clues. So, it's a great book especially for those not yet very familiar with the Coburg family.

That's great! I checked the hyperlink from your signature and saw that I can download the first chapter of the book. I've just downloaded it and get back to you when I finish reading it. Based on the first few paragraphs, I think it's an easy read.

It's an easy read. I find it very helpful especially for the non-historian and those not very familiar with how the Coburgs rose to power in the 19th century. Thanks for sharing the author's blogsite. :)

You're welcome callista. It really is an easy to read book given the difficulty of tracing royal genealogy.

Did anyone know this book?

Title: The Red Prince: The Secret Lives of A Habsburg Archduke
Author: Timothy Snyder
Publication: 2008

It's about Archduke Wilhelm von Habsburg (1896-1948) son of Charles Stephen of Austria and Maria Theresia of Austria-Tuscany.

Is it worth to buy or no?

Recommend a good book

Hi,

I wonder if anyone could give me some good advice? I'm looking for a book that would cover 18th and 19th century German nobility - particually just the ruling families. Something that gives me a bit of background on each one (pictures would be a bonus - though I know of course that photography wasn't much used before 1850 - but there were paintings)

I know that Burkes Peerage might be useful - but it's frightfully expensive. I have sourced some of the "Who's who's" from the 1870's which give some insight - but those really only cover the ruler of the territory and give very little on his family.

Any pointers appreciated - thanks :)

"Hessian Tapestry" by David Duff

I remember seeing a book by this title in my local library a few years ago. Now I have more time to read it , the book has been removed from the shelves.
It was, I remember about Princess Louise of Hess Damstart, a Granddaughter ? of Queen Victoria.
Can anyone with more knowledge of European Royalty provide me with any information about this Princess ?
I do not want to use Wiki as I do not always find the information provided reliable.
Many thanks

There wasn't any Luise von Hessen und Rhine that was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria...

Although,every one of her Hessen granddaughters had name Louise(Luise) as one of their names...
