    One thought on “The Royal Marriage Market of Europe (Volume 412)”

    1. Written in 1915, this is an overview of some marriages among European royal families and speculation on who in the upcoming royal generation would marry whom. Fascinating, because the author assumes all these royal dynasties will survive WWI, when most didn't, and sad because we know how the then-young royals ended up. One of the saddest parts is the chapter that speculates on who the daughters and son of Nicholas and Alexandra would marry, when three years later the entire family would be horri [...]

    2. It's not often you get to read contrafactual gossip. Princess Catherine Radziwill reviewed all the royal houses of Europe, most of which wouldn't survive World War I, and speculated about whom the various rulers and heirs would marry. Fascinating because of the political insights--this was the period in which female royals were still being used as political trading cards--and the spookiness of knowing what really happened to these people. Read about Grand Duchess Marie Adelaide, who was then the [...]

    3. Gossip as history. Written by an insider (Polish Princess Catherine Radziwill) in 1915, it covers the marriages and anticipated marriages of European royalty. It is both interesting and sad. Interesting because it reveals the politics and personal reasonings behind the pairings. Sad because she doesn't realize many of the European royalty would no longer exist after WWI through dethronement or death.
