Inglorious Royal Marriages

Inglorious-royal-marriages-book-cover“Inglorious Royal Marriages: Demi-Millenium of Unholy Mismatrimony” by Leslie Carroll
Nonfiction – 3 stars

I have read at least three other Leslie Carroll books before, usually on similar topics or royal scandals that are all a little tongue in cheek. This one was a little different – it was darker than expected. The chapters are a bit longer and more discussion of politics of the day (which I liked!), but the author frequently repeated something in each chapter that more careful editing would have caught. But if you’re looking for a introductory book into the politics of royal marriages from 1400 on this is a good start.
