Abstract:

This stunningly visual, handsomely produced book contains the lives of the world's most fascinating princesses, including: Mary, Elizabeth I, Marie Antoniette, Victoria, Anastasia, Ka'iulani of Hawai'i, Gayatri Devi of India, and sisters Elizabeth II and Margaret Rose. Portraits of each princess are complemented with photographs of their possessions and period artifacts. Beyond the glamorous details of royal life are the personal stories -- from family troubles to dramatic, often tragic events of war and intrigue. This is a wonderfully appealing book for fans of Anastasia's Album: The Last Tsar's Youngest Daughter Tells Her Own Story and the Royal Diaries series.--

     Students who are interested in royalty will enjoy this book. It covers Hawaiian princesses. There are good timelines in each section of the book.
