Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"the book lingers with you long after you have finished it." (Majesty, September 2006)

"As ... Warwick’s biography of Ella aptly demonstrates, unravel one biography of a late-19th-century European royal and the entire dynasty unfolds." (The Daily Telegraph, November 2006)

"…inspiring…" (Majesty, November 2006)

"Christopher Warwick marshals an impressive dossier of research, drawing extensively on primary sources, to bring to life the lost worlds of late 19th Century royalty and the sumptuous last gasp of the Romanovs...it is hard to imagine a more rigorous study of a woman who, unusually in the annals of history, combined the roles of society beauty and latter-day saint." (Mail on Sunday, December 2006)

"Warwick's biography is freighted with domestic and cultural detail and weighted with tragedy." (The Times, December 2006)

“Christopher Warwick’s well-research biography fills a gap in the literature of royal lives.” (The Times Literary Supplement, February 2007)

"Christopher Warwick has given the story a new power and a subtle shift of meaning." (Royalty Digest, February 2007)

"Christopher Warwick's acclaimed new biography of Ella sheds new light on a remarkable woman." (Royalty Magazine)

"…a definitive biography…Elisabeth Feodorovna is one of the last century's true heroes. Christopher Warwick's book will tell you why." (The Tablet, February 2007)

The remarkable life of Elizabeth, or Ella as she was almost universally known, is revealed in fascinating detail by  Warwick.” (Yorkshire Evening Post, March 2007)

“…Warwick has produced a definitive biography…” (The Tablet, March 2007)
