British history is fun! Jan. 15 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Quite delightful yet subdued and scholarly history of all the known and suspected illegitimate children of British royals over the centuries. Some are quite well known and others are a surprise. If you are at all interested in British history, you will enjoy this book.

A bit of a chore to read May 31 2011
By csps7510 - Published on
Format: Paperback
A well-researched book, "Royal Bastards" has a textual, dry tone. Entire paragraphs are repeated verbatim between subchapters in the section on Charles II's illegitimate children. Also, many of these royal offspring were not very interesting people (or, they are not presented in an interesting way). The most engaging subchapters concern rumors of illegitimacy (Sonia Keppel Cubitt; Timothy Ward Seely) from the early 20th century.

It was an okay book. It was an interesting subject but bland way of writing. It wasn't one of my favorites.
