A very interesting and informative book, especially if you are into European history. While the history of the Georges is fairly well-known, court life is usually referenced in passing without much detail. This author is well-informed and gives us the real picture of all that went on behind the scenes at court. The politics, values, expectations and routines of the time are all there, down to the hygiene practices - or lack thereof. We tend to forget that court life was not all luxury and comfort, and that life could be hard even for the privleged, depending on the whims of the monarch.Was this review helpful?
