I currently have over 2,000 books in my library, plus 12 boxes that are still packed away. (My family loves books and there are ALOT that go back 3 to 4 generations.) I have approximately 60 to 70 that are about royalty, be it fiction or nonfiction. My largest collection is cookbooks, some going back to the late 18th century, very treasured! Second largest is Bibles, used by my ancestors, and some older ones that were given to me as gifts. As you can guess, I am a big collector of books, and cant seem to part with any.

Oh crikey - I dread to think how many. As a 13 year old I had a whole wall in my room with shelves full of Royal books (one of my friends in later life wondered whether I was the only teenage boy whose Christmas list started with 'Queen Mary's Photograph Albums').

I have slowed down, but as well as the shelves groaning in my house, there are boxes under my bed and the spare bed, and still a few boxes in my parents' loft. I dread to think - 500 perhaps?

Does that represent obsession?

I read the Princess Louise book a while back and remember enjoying it. I think I got it from a library because I only read it once. I hadn't realised that she really didn't have all that happy a married life.

Must look out for the Finestone book; it sounds very interesting!

It's not bad because of it's coverage of the less well-reported Courts. The actual content of the book lies more in the photo captions than in the text itself. Robert K Massie has written a very lengthy introduction on the nature of European monarchy with subsections on the "Saxe-Coburg-Windsors", Habsburgs, Hohenzollerns and Romanovs. A lot of effort has gone into finding the numerous photos, and that is probably the book's greatest appeal. Many of the pics have since found their way onto the internet.

I am amazed by all of the books some people have! I probably only have about 15 royal books, but the library is growing!

I´ve got THOUSANDS. What is very annoying as I am running out of space and out of time to read them all!!!!
I am a compulsive buyer and I even buy royal books in languages I cannot read (like Greek, German, Danish, etc).
I started collecting in the 1970s when I could rad only in Portuguese and French. Now I can read in Spanish, English and Italian also and I am very proud of my library of books in so many languages. It has become a vice..............

I have a few book (about 20 or 30), specially about the Shah of Iran and Pahlavi Family, but I have also a biography about Nicolas II and Fabergé Eggs, other about the wedding between King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia and the book by Vincent Meylan "Queen Jewels".

Regards!

I think I've got 3 - one is the companion book to the BBC's 2006 series 'Monarchy: the Royal Family at Work', the second one is about Crown Princess of Mary of Denmark and the third one is about the Prince Charles-Jospeh de Ligne,a nobleman in the court of the Holy Roman/Austrian empires
