    To this day Marie Antoinette remains one of history’s most misunderstood heroines. How she triumphed over the petty jealousies and backstairs rivalries of the court, how she sustained a good-hearted but malleable king, and how she was transformed from French queen to Austrian “whore,” is the story told with skill and fascinating detail.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this, I am not the biggest fan of French Revolution history because it think we overlook or are numb to the things that display the anarchy, brutality, and humanity. This was beautifully presented but the audio leaves something to be desired. There was some feedback and messed up audio.

  • The Romanovs: 1613-1918

    Story
    (596)

    This is the intimate story of 20 tsars and tsarinas, some touched by genius, some by madness, but all inspired by holy autocracy and imperial ambition. Simon Sebag Montefiore's gripping chronicle reveals their secret world of unlimited power and ruthless empire building, overshadowed by palace conspiracy, family rivalries, sexual decadence, and wild extravagance, with a global cast of adventurers, courtesans, revolutionaries, and poets, from Ivan the Terrible to Tolstoy and Pushkin.

    Story

    I was not fond of this one... she never learns or really changes... I couldn't even finish it for all the swooning and pining... maybe it was just about to get good. I was way more then halfway through...
