Anyone could suggest me some title about Bourbon Dinasty? Thank you!

I agree you, I thik it's too much!
If the reason why of this decision it's just to limitate using the style HRH, I guess Harald V has exagereted; in this way just the kronprinz and his first heir will be able to use the royal style...isn't it a little absurd? Really absurd if we think that the Nowegian Royal House has not so many members as others Houses, like UK Royal House!

I agree, a great book, but also these books:

- Casa Savoia. Diario di una Monarchia by Princess Maria Gabriella;

- Le origini di Casa Savoia by Queen Maria Josť;

- La regina incompresa by Luciano Regolo;

- Il re signore by Luciano Regolo;

- Jelena by Luciano Regolo;

- Giovinezza di una regina by Queen Maria Josť;

- La regina Margherita by Carlo Casalegno;

- I Savoia by Francesco Cognasso.

There are many many others books about the House of Savoy, these are just a little part.

Yes it's true "the king reigns but not governs", but anyway he must reign and politic always matters, perhaps just a little and not as in the Prime Minister's role, but it always matters in every monarchy!  ;)

I think he modernized the monarchy, or better, his image and I guess it was not so simple to be a sovereign between USSR and USA during the "cold war", expecially for the king of a Country that is between the two bloks, as the Norway was.
It has be clever to understand that a monarchy must follow the times and must develop itself to survive in those years as in thees years; the Greek lesson is clear and present for everybody!

Ok, but if the jewels that are in the caveaux of the Banca d'Italia are property of the Royal House, why the Royal House Minister (Falcone Lucifero till the 90s) never went to take them?
Queen Margaret's perls were divided between the King Viktor Emanuel III's daughters after th Queen Mother'deth in the 1926.

As Hereditary Prince and as King, Olav lived and reigned in a difficult period; he lived the German occupation and the exile and after, he lived the "cold war" and the great changes of the second part of the XX century; he has been able to create a newly, an innovative, image  of King's role and Monarchy role for Norway, if he didn't make this work I'm not sure that Norway would be a monarchy today!
I guess, but it's just my opinion, he should be an example, a lesson, for his grandson Prince Haakon Magnus...but just history will be able to tell it!

Me too, but that's the King's decision...a realy strange decision!
