Overview

Looking at fifteen different royal figures who went into exile, this volume discusses the role of exiled monarchs in domestic politics, in the state system in Europe and in the dynastic networks which transcended national frontiers.

For the first time, monarchical exile is understood as a socio-political constellation that transformed society and not as personal fate or failure without further historical relevance.
