The acclaimed Penguin Monarchs series: short, fresh, expert accounts of England's rulers - now in paperback

Like his mother Queen Victoria, Edward VII defined an era. Both reflected the personalities of their central figures: hers grand, imperial and pretty stiff; his no less grand, but much more relaxed and enjoyable. This book conveys Edward's distinct personality and significant influences. To the despair of his parents, he rebelled as a young man, conducting many affairs and living a life of pleasure. But as king he made a distinct contribution to European diplomacy and - which is little known - to London, laying out the Mall and Admiralty Arch.

Richard Davenport-Hines's book is as enjoyable as its subject and the age he made.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. 'Bertie was emotional and energetic- the authoritarian monotony of his upbringing imbued him with a fear of boredom' Cosmopolitan, pleasure-loving and worldly, Edward VII lived a hedonistic life. But he was also a pioneering philanthropist, travelled widely and transformed London into the leading royal capital of Europe. Richard Davenport-Hines's biography is as pleasurable as its subject and the age of glamour and leisure, social reform and social brilliance, that Edward made.
