Just eight years after Norway had elected its own king, Europe was plunged into a bloody world war, followed by famine and revolutions. Weather-bound in their mountain retreat, the Norwegian royal couple followed their relations’ struggle for life and death across Europe. What role could a king play at a time when crowns and ermine robes could be bought two a penny? From his unique sources, Tor Bomann-Larsen shows us the inside of a dramatic epoch and human drama.
This is the third independent volume of biographies about King Haakon and Queen Maud, covering the period from 1906 to 1918, from the coronation in Nidaros Cathedral to the murders of the Russian Tsar Family in Yekaterinburg.
