The fourth volume of Bomann-Larsen’s monumental work about Norway’s first royal couple in modern times begins with the outbreak of the First World War. Europe’s royalty and aristocracy crumble and the Russian Tsar and his family have been executed. King Haakon is still considering abdication. And while the war rages in Europe, two factions at home confront each other in what threatens to become a civil war – a war between Norway’s social classes.
Tor Bomann-Larsen (1951–) wields one of Norway’s sharpest and wittiest pens, whether he is writing or drawing. In recent years he has been best known for his epic works chronicling the reign of King Haakon and Queen Maud, and for his biographies of Sigurd Christiansen and Roald Amundsen.
