Forum Announcements / +Robert (Bobby) Hall
« on: December 11, 2012, 04:22:02 PM »
Dear Forum members,

Our friend Bobby Hall, who posted here for many years, passed away earlier today. Bobby had been battling an ailment that worsened over the last few weeks. Sadly, he lost a courageous battle leaving behind many wonderful memories and strong and blessed friendships.

Bobby was among the first subscribers of Eurohistory. He always ordered all our books and purchased countless ones through us.

When I lived in San Francisco, Bobby and I used to get together at his house and talk royalty for hours. He attended our wedding and also came to several of the Eurohistory Royal Conferences. His quiet demeanor, penchant for privacy and deep loyalty made Bobby a truly unique individual.

His partner Randy will surely miss Bobby deeply, more so than any of us can imagine.

May He Rest in Peace...

ROYAL GATHERINGS was inspired by an Eurohistory Magazine section, What's In a Photo, that has proven to be the publication's most popular feature. Co-authored by Ilana D. Miller and Arturo E. Beéche, it promises to be an excellent addition to Eurohistory's growing library of unique titles.

Ranging from the overthrow of King Francesco II of the Two Sicilies in 1859 to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este in 1914, ROYAL GATHERINGS examines 38 group photos taken at various royalty get-togethers between those years. Each of the thirty-eight chapters focuses on one particular gathering. In each gathering the authors provided vignettes, or what Prince Michael of Greece calls "la petite histoire," on each of the royal personages featured in the chosen photograph.

Besides written stories on each of the royalties present in any of the given group photos, the authors have also included many individual photos to accompany the text. The book contains more than 250 photos, as well as an extensive family tree that  includes most of the royalties discussed in the book. ROYAL GATHERINGS is 172-long glossy pages, hardbound.

Given the recent renunciation to the Galliera trust by Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, I thought of the Duchy of Galliera and its cumbersome history spanning three royal families!

Enjoy!

Eurohistory brings you Ilana Miller's amazing story of Victoria, Elisabeth, Irene and Alix of Hesse and by Rhine, Queen Victoria's Hessian granddaughters, The Four Graces. This excellent book covers the lifespan of these four very tragic sisters. Ms. Miller did extensive research to bring us closer to the four sisters of Hesse. The thrilling narrative is certain to keep the reader grasped as the lives of these women unfold. Handsomely illustrated with unique photos of the Hessian sisters and their descendants, this hardbound book promises to become a "must-read" for anyone interested in European royal history and the Russian Imperial Family. The book also includes several family trees helping the reader place the extensive cast of characters in historical perspective, as well as a glossy photo section with close to 100 unique images of the protagonists and their extended web of royal and imperial relations!

Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / The Grand Dukes, Volume 1
« on: October 24, 2010, 04:52:04 PM »
Arturo E. Beéche, founder and publisher of The European Royal History Journal, thought of the idea for an anthology on Russia’s Grand Duchesses. That book was published six years and since then it has received wide attention and praise. Consequently, a companion book on the Russian Grand Dukes became imperative. The Grand Dukes: Sons and Grandsons of Russia’s Tsars Since Paul I examines the biographies of nearly forty men whose birth gave them the right to one of the world’s most prestigious positions. All sons of Russian tsars are covered in Volume I. The sons of collateral grand ducal branches are covered in Volume II.

The biography of each of the Grand Dukes of Russia brings to life a deeply gripping human saga. These men were born into what then was one of the world’s most powerful ruling dynasties. They were not all saints; they were not all demons – they were men whose birth showered them with untold privilege. Some used their birthright for the common good; some did not. Yet, they all remain amazingly intriguing, complex, complicated and conflicted human beings. At birth they were showered with untold privilege, including a lump sum of money placed in trust for them. By the time these funds were made available to a Grand Duke, the interest alone made them amazingly wealthy. Added to this benefit, they derived salaries from their military appointments, investments, real estate and inheritance. Thus, the Grand Dukes were able to maintain a lifestyle only surpassed by today’s oligarchs and yesteryear’s robber barons. They were consummate spenders in paintings, art, architecture, jewels, all while acting as sponsors of talented writers, thinkers, poets, ballerinas, among many others. One was a playwright of considerable talent. Another played a role in working toward the liberation of the serfs. One was a leading admiral with a fondness for “fast women and slow ships.” Another Grand Duke lived a tortured existence as a closeted homosexual, yet became the father of nine children. Told in a two-volume set, this is their story.

Participating in this extensive research project were some of today’s best-known royalty authors. They included: Charles Stewart, a well-known and respected royal anthropologist, as well as one of the world’s leading experts in the rules that governed the lives of European royalty; Janet Ashton, a well-known contributor to royalty magazines and published from the United Kingdom; Zoia Belyakova, a well-known Russian scholar with countless books to her name; Lisa Davidson, one of the leading forces behind The Alexander Palace Time Machine (www.alexanderpalace.org); Coryne Hall, a highly-respected royal author with several books and countless articles to her name; Ilana Miller, a Pepperdine University faculty member, who happens to be a leading expert on the Grand Dukes of Hesse and By Rhine; Greg King, one of today’s most talented royal biographers; Marlene Eilers-Koenig, a well-known expert on royalty and the descendants of Queen Victoria; William Lee, a university professor from Oregon with a deep love of Russia and its culture; John van der Kiste, easily the most prolific royalty author of today; Grant Hayter-Menzies, a talented writer and contributor to historical journals; Penny Wilson, a well-known writer and expert on the Romanovs.

I am in Brussels and have just heard that Romanov expert extraordinaire, Jacques Ferrand, a dear friend of many, many years, died in an automobile accident yesterday!

His erudition and knowledge on all things Romanov, but particularly when it came to his fabulous books, has served us all very well!

I was last with him in Paris but a few weeks ago and am completely devastated by his untimely passing...how awful and how tenuous is our lease on this planet.
