Kiste, vd J/Marie, Queen of Roumania - The Story of my Life
Born in 1875, the daughter of Queen Victoria's second son Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh and Tsar Alexander II's daughter Grand Duchess Marie, Princess Marie married Crown Prince Ferdinand of Roumania in 1893 and became Queen on his accession to the throne in 1914. Her three volumes of memoirs, covering her life from birth to the end of the First World War in 1918, paint a lively picture of her upbringing in England, Malta and Germany, her sometimes difficult life as a young wife and mother in Roumania, and her struggle during an uncertain time when the country was poised between invasion and defeat, and ultimate victory. First issued between 1934 and 1935, a few years before her death, they appear here for the first time in one volume. Introduction by John van der Kiste. Paperback, Size 24.41 cms x 16.99 cms , 638 pages, in English.
