but in general its very informative. and the introduction is great.
I was also fascinated by the family tree showing how Princess M is descended from both women. her lineage is amazing.
I read the book and I enjoyed it, even though it dragged in some places. I am bored with all the tedious descriptions of wars and battles.
Princess Michael has an impressive lineage indeed, but I am amused at how she goes out of her way during interviews to promote the book and in the book's forward to point out her descent from Diane de Poitiers(who she obviously admires a lot) but plays down her lineage from Catherine de Medici....not that I blame her I guess LOL!
