Hall, Coryne / Driver, Senta - Hvidøre, a Royal Retreat

Hall, Coryne / Driver, Senta - Hvidøre, a Royal Retreat
In 1906 Queen Alexandra and her sister the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna of Russia purchased Hvidøre, a villa on the Danish coast, a private home. Until 1914 the sisters visited the property every autumn, entertaining friends and many royal relatives in an informal atmosphere. It was indeed a royal retreat. The first WorldWar put an end to these happy times but in 1909, now exiled from Russia, the Dowager Empress made the villa her home and Hvidøre became a court in exile. In 1920 she was joined by her younger daughter Olga and her family, who all lived at Hvidøre, not always happily, untill the Empress's death in 1928. A Royal Retreat tells the story of the purchase, renovation, the many royal visitors and finally the sale of this forgotten royal home. Magnificent original illustrations from a private collection. This book will be launched at the Royalty Digest weekend 14th April 2012. Hardback, 96 pages, 100 illustrations, in English.
