Isaksen, T.N - Ingrid Alexandras Arv
Ingrid Alexandra's Legacy: The Tiaras of Norway's Royal Family and the Women Who Wore Them. A story of war, love, power and splendor over 250 years. When Royal history is written, it is usually about men and about male lines, as until recently the crown passed from man to man within one dynasty. The tiaras, on the other hand, passed from woman to woman - from mother to daughter, from mother-in-law to daughter-in-law, from sister to sister, and from grandmother to granddaughters and granddaughters. They tell the stories about the female lines that connected the royal families across national borders and about the women who bore them. Some tiaras were lost along the way - two were stolen and one disappeared without a trace - but today Norwegian royal women have access to a total of seventeen tiaras. Most of them will sooner or later go to Princess Ingrid Alexandra when she becomes Norway's first reigning queen since the 15th century. In her the lines of all the women who have worn these tiaras meet. This is Ingrid Alexandra's family history of more than 250 years, told through jewels. The book contains more than 250 illustrations from archives and collections in Norway and abroad. Hardback edition, available in Norwegian language only.
