When it will be released the book on Princess Clementine?It is now June  and  still not available in Amazon.fr. Any news about it?

God knows when this book is going to be available as it keeps being delayed again and again and again ! The last date of release indicated on the publisher website was May 29 but the book is to be found neither in bookshops nor on the Internet. I emailed the publisher yesterday and am waiting for an answer. Will let everybody know.

Not likely... :( I got a friend to translate the book on Duchess Sophie Charlotte of Alencon by (Dominique Paoli) Racine for my research...I was lucky.  ::)

Wow, your friend is obviously a very nice person. Her story, particularly her heroic death is very interesting (The Duchess). What are you researching? That is if you don't mind me asking.

I'm searching for portraits and photos about Princess Clementine (1817-1907), Princess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. I'm interested in photos about her, especially when she was young (ca. 1860's), and together with family and children.

Thank for your help!

La Médicis des Cobourg has AT LAST been published !! I bought my copy this afternoon. The pics are wonderful, many previously unknown (at least to me) of Clémentine's children. I read a couple of chapters in the underground and the book seems to be as interesting and well researched as the other Defrance bios. I am planning to spend the night immersed in my reading (never mind work tomorrow).

I had first ordered it on amazon.fr but they sent me an e.mail stating they would not be able to send the book before november so I got bored and cancelled my order. I jumped on the first copy I found in Galignani bookshop in Paris (where I buy the major part of my books about royalty apart from the Internet). The Clémentine bio is as just interesting and full of details as the other bios by Olivier Defrance. I was only disappointed there was so little on the youth of Clémentine's daughters Clotilde & Amalie but I guess documents on that subject are simply scarce. Gorgeous pics of these 2 princesses to be found though.

Thanks. I will try to contact Galignani. Iam tired to wait for this book. I also ordered by Amazon, but like you say only in November.

Agneschen, could you please show us some pictures? It's so hard to find pics of Amalie and I'm so much interested in her!
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.
