This is because most historians concentrate on the monarchs: queens regnant are given their due, but not queens consort, those wives of the nations rulers who do not reign in their own right. Yet these women - the cream of Europes royal families, flowers of European aristocracy and mothers to future kings and queens - have led fascinating lives. Here at last is the complete picture.

As well as chronicling the public lives of all our queens, regnant or otherwise, Alex Cobban reveals the details of their family backgrounds, the qualities and quirks of their personalities, the secrets of their courtship and the course of their relationships both within and outside marriage. Packed with a wealth of anecdotal detail, Royal Ladies amounts to an idiosyncratic but uniquely illuminating history of Britain from the Norman Conquest to the present day.

Alex Cobban first worked for The Times newspaper before becoming a tourist guide for twenty-five years. He has lectured to groups and clubs in the UK and did a lengthy lecture tour in the USA. Both he and his wife (Peggy) were awarded MBEs for their services to tourism.
