John van der Kiste

This royal biographer (a librarian who lives in Devon and therefore is after my own heart) might be my favorite. (Probably tied with Pimlott and Shawcross, I don't know.)

Some of his titles are:
Queen Victoria's Children
Edward VII's Children
Queen Victoria and the European Empires
The Prussian Princesses
Once a Grand Duchess: Xenia
George V's Children
Dearest Vicky, Darling Fritz
Kaiser Wilhelm II
Northern Crowns: The Kings of Modern Scandinavia
Emperor Francis Joseph
Sons, Servants, and Statesmen
King George II and Queen Caroline
Heroes of the Glorious Revolution: William and Mary
Alfred: Queen Victoria's Second Son
