I've always been under the impression that not much was known about Franzjos and Anna, and their life together.  Mostly, of course, because it was a private life.
So long and thanks for all the fish

I was just disappointed that with usuing family albums and all that there weren't more pictures of the couple.  :( The ones they had were nice though.

Does anybody know about a bio of Alexander von Battenberg which has been published in Bulgaria? I know all the ones that have been pubished in Germany. Maybe after his death a bio was written ?

Danke Linnea. Where could I find the other books with 'even longer titles'? I know the one from Golowine, it is also published in german. Petko Beev I don't know.

One of the best Royal biographies ever written.  Hannah Pakula's work/research is on the same level as Robert Massie's.

However, please sed that Ms. Pakula did not havre access to all of the letters as discussedin this thread elsewhere in the Balkan Section of the forum.

I read it long ago, but in my opinion it is better than the Elsberry ( is that how you spell it?) biography. I really understood Missy's character after reading this book, and it does a good job of helping you learn about her somewhat complex but always interesting personality and life. She was always popular, in contrast to her sister.
