'Born to Rule' is a fascinating look at five queens who were also granddaughters of Queen Victoria. Each of the five found themselves trying to learn the language, customs and religion of a thoroughly foreign country with husbands who were virtually strangers. This is a great look at history through the eyes of women who were thrust into extraordinary situations in a time of great wars and greater historical upheavals. Lots of good photos too.

I truly enjoyed this book. Gelardi's research was magnificently portrayed in this book. If you like Victorian Aged history, this is a book for you.

The author really did her research, and it results in a easy to read in-depth look at the lives of five of Queen Victoria's grand-daughters who all went on the become Queens/Tsarina/Princesses of foreign countries. From the haunting story of Tsarina Alexandra and the Romanovs to the scandalous reign of Queen Marie of Romania, the book covers these women from their childhood, through romances and up to their introduction to the countries they habited after their marriages and the trials, tribulations and love they endured. A great historical book about some women that people probably wouldn't have read about until this book.

Could not put the book down my only negative comment is the book has too many notes. It makes the e version hard to read as the notes are not linked

It is a biography, but reads like a novel. Would recommend this to any of my friends.
