Praise for Notorious Royal Marriages

“For those who tackled Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, and can’t get enough of the scandal surrounding Henry VIII’s wives, [Notorious Royal Marriages] is the perfect companion book.”—The New Yorker

“Carroll writes with verve and wit about the passionate—and occasionally perilous—events that occur when royals wed….Carroll’s fascinating account of nine centuries of royal marriages is an irresistible combination of People magazine and the History Channel.”—Chicago Tribune (5 stars)

“Sex! Intrigue! Scandal! Carroll’s newest offering chronicles well-known matrimonial pairings among European royals during the last nine hundred years. With a breezy and lively narrative, she gives the dirt on a parade of often mismatched couples.”—Historical Novels Review

“Carroll is a sharp and amusing writer…You’ll be entertained like a tabloid would entertain you, but you’ll also learn as much as you would in a European studies course in college…a perfect marriage of a book!”—
