Sniadanko, Der Erzherzog, der den Schwarmarkt regierte, Matrosen
Alongside Empress Sisi and Crown Prince Rudolf, the aristocratic 'outlaw' fits perfectly into the ranks of his exquisite eccentric relatives: Archduke Wilhelm. He suffers from spider and needle phobia. He is passionately committed to the fight for Ukrainian women's independence - then the October Revolution ruins his plans to become King of Ukraine. Years of 'underground' life as a spy follow, his wealthy relatives finance his excellent life in Paris. In short: Wilhelm was always politically ambitious, but always knew how to enjoy life. According to the history books, Wilhelm's life came to an end in 1948. But author Natalka Sniadanko makes him come back to life in this book. The life of his granddaughter Halyna is also characterized by upheavals, she recognizes a lot in the anecdotes of her grandfather found 100 years ago. The book presents a dynamic panorama of an exceptional family of eccentric figures in an exceptional century. The writer represents a time machine and powerfully mixes historical facts and literary fiction to allow history to be experienced in a completely different way. Hardback edition, German, 14.5x22cm, 422 pages.
