Mafalda di Savoia
 
I just learned about this Italian miniseries about the life of Princess Mafalda of Savoy, the daughter of King Vittorio Emanuele III, who married Prince Philipp of Hesse and later died in a Nazi prison camp.

The miniseries is in Italian, but I was wondering if it is available to purchase somewhere, with English subtitles, or at all. Here is the trailer: YouTube - MAFALDA DI SAVOIA

It looks very good, and it looks like the Royal Family was very involved in the production. Princess Maria Gabriella was a consultant, and Clotilde Courau, who is the wife of Prince Emanuele Filiberto, played Princess Giovanna in the film.

Now that I think about it, this is not properly a book about House Savoy...It's excellent about Queen Maria Jose, but not exactly about the Italian Royal Family...

a lot of lies!!!!!

Sorry, but Maria José telling how her father met her mother is simply UNTRUE. And historians accepted her version for many years until the moment a bio on Queen Elisabete (sic, I am writing in a hurry) was published in around 10 years ago.

The book Queen Marie-José wrote many years ago about her parents TM King Albert Ier and Queen Elisabeth was a best-seller and a very interesting book with a highlight of both exceptional monarchs and their heroic behaviour during WW1.

And how did it happen?

I agree completely with you, Maria-Olivia, this book is very very interesting, and portrays two great monarchs.

Can anyone tell me a good book on Italian Royalty? I am very interested because of my Italian ancestry. Both of my parents' families originated from the town of Lucca, Italy. I have been reading here and trying to learn about Italian Royalty and have learn much, but I want more knowledge. I only read English. Thank you.:flowers:

Does anyone know any books on Italian Royalty written in English?
