Some lost their thrones. Others supported the Nazis. Several suffered from haemophilia. One had to get
a job, and another was executed!
Written entirely in the first person and fully based on accurate historical accounts, Michael Farah imagines
how this royal family would have described the events of their extraordinary existence, scandals, loves,
triumphs and tragedies.
In Children of The Empire, forty-seven children and grandchildren of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert
individually tell the stories of their lives, from their early childhood to the very end. Complete with individual
portraits and family trees, this is an accessible and unique look at the extended royal family that has
stretched across Europe, some of them becoming Kings and Queens.
