Sneak peek: December 2013 new royalty books


Sadly, it seems there won’t be many new books on royal topics waiting for us in bookstores next month. But here’s a sneak peek at three titles that are scheduled for publication in December:

Elizabeth of York by Alison Weir. Biography. The first child of England’s King Edward IV, Elizabeth married Henry VII, ending the Wars of the Roses. She was the mother of Henry VIII.

Queenship in the Mediterranean edited by Elena Woodacre. Explores the key roles queens played in the medieval and early modern eras.

Becoming Josephine by Heather Webb. Novel about the Creole socialite who became the wife of French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.

Publication dates are based on U.S. publishing schedules and are subject to change. To see the full list of December’s new royalty books, visit the Books page next month.

If I could read only one of the books listed above, I would pick "Elizabeth of York" because Alison Weir is my favorite royal biographer. Which book would you choose?
