by Prince Michael of Albany
     
 
In these pages the heroes and victims of Scottish history live again--Macbeth; Robert the Bruce; Mary; Queen of Scots. Here are the facts about the Stone of Destiny, The Knights Templars, the Jacobite Risings and the American War of Independence.

As Scottish nationhood re-emerges as a major issue, the telling of this truly epic history has never been more relevant.

The history is solid, but it stops when he generates the fictitious lineage from Bonnie Prince Charlie. Everything but his and his 'ancestors' role after Culloden is accurate. None of the groups he claims to be a member of, including the European Constitutional Advisory Council made up of deposed princes of which he is supposedly president, exist. In fact, their websites are all on *his* website. Good to read for a history if you can take him with a grain of salt. Smart Belgian kid, that Michael LaFosse. Either trying to cash in on my ethnicity's current popularity, or perhaps genuinely looney.

After having read several dozen histories of Scotland, I have become familiar with the basics of geography, chronological history, politics, and important historical figures of Scotia. This book, 'The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland' has turned everything I thought I knew about Scotland completely upside down. HRH Prince Michael of Albany presents an exhaustively researched picture that will surprise many, shock some, and positively delight frustrated Jacobites. The timing of the release of this important work coincided with the resumption of the Scottish Parliment (after a 200 and some years suspension) and may well be Scotlands' introduction to her next king, should the Scots decide to break completely with England. If you want a history of Scotland unlike any you have ever read, then be sure to read 'The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland'!
