The Kings' Mistresses - Alan Hardy

Evans Brothers, 1980, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Gently faded at the spine.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “The role of mistress to the monarch is as old as the monarchy itself. Certainly in Britain in the last 300 years there has been no shortage of women anxious to share the royal bed, as Alan Hardy reveals in this entertaining and well researched book. Even apparently devoted and uxorious kings have welcomed the escape from the formality of court life and a dynastic marriage to a more casual relationship with a paramour — a relationship which might be no more than a brief affair, or might develop into a lifetime’s devotion.”

Size: 9" x 5¾". Pale Orange boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 189 pages.
