I noticed that the author published at Lulu.  That's an idea for people who like to write about royalty
and are thinking of self-publishing!

I hope that it does well.

I emailed the author because I had some questions about his book (before ordering and after reading it) and he said that he's got a new publisher for In Destiny's Hands.  

Eric Lowe, what was your photo books about? Who was/were featured?

My book are called "Royalty in Photographs" & "Royal Images". Both of them are photo books on the families of Queen Victoria & King Christian IX of Denmark's decendents. I included some Wittelsbachs and Hapsburg there too.

That sounds very interesting! I have not read much on Queen Victoria's descendants or King Christian IX's for that matter.  Still too busy with Maria Theresa's children...... but I would love to see your photobooks one of these days. Thanks for sharing!

I still got copies of it. One of my favourites to find is cdvs or cabinet cards of different branches of Hapsburgs in the reign of Franz Josef.

Thanks.

I don't know if there is a book on the Polish Hapsburgs. "The Red Prince" made me want to read more about this family who lived and married in Poland.

I don't think there were too many photo books of Hapsburg in English. Most of mine were German and bought in Vienna or Insbruck.

There are a lot on the ruling families. I like "The Last Empress" by Gorden Brooke Shepard on Empress Zita. He also wrote books on Franz Ferdinand (Archduke of Saravivo), Emperor and Franz Josef. One should start from his books. A recent addition is John Van Der Kiste book on Emperor Franz Josef, a more entry level book that cover the basics. As for Sisi, there are at least six that merits mention. But the one not to miss is the Corti one, filled with first hand information.

I read 'The Reluctant Empress' but I must look out for the Corti one.  It sounds fascinating!

Yes. Brigitte worked with the Corti to begin her research on her book.

I looked for the Corti book without much luck. I found Brigitte Hamann's book very good.
