    This is an excellent book that fills a major gap in the story of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Countess Sophie; namely, what happened to their children and grandchildren after they were assassinated.

    I'm always been fascinated by the what ifs surrounding the family of the last tsar of Russia not so much what was going on in Austria Hungary that helped precipitate the fall of the Romanovs. I decided to read this book on the strength of some of Greg King's other works, and was not disappointed.

    While most people know that the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in Sarajevo on 28th June 1914 was the spark that ignited the First World War, few know little or anything about the Archduke himself and the life he lived before that fateful day.

This is an excellent book that fills a major gap in the story of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Countess Sophie namely what happened to their children and grandchildren after they were assassinated So much of their lives had been spent trying to plan for their future after the Archduke was forced to essentially disinherit their heirs from their imperial entitlements that even they could hardly have imagined how history would inflict even greater hardships and deprivations on their progeny in the decades ahead largely unrelated to the circumstances of their deaths I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the era or for that matter in a too often overlooked real life romance that outshines most of the recent legends that rarely live up to their billings Icebergs plan for their future after the Archduke was forced to essentially disinherit their heirs from their imperial entitlements that even they could hardly have imagined how history would inflict even greater hardships and deprivations on their The Line progeny in the decades ahead largely unrelated to the circumstances of their deaths I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the era or for that matter in a too often overlooked real life romance that outshines most of the recent legends that rarely live up to their billings

Ippi. We ve all heard of Archduke Franz Ferdinand whose assassination sparked the First World War But I for one knew little about him personallyThe assassination and the politics surrounding it are condensed into a few chapters The book is really the story of Franz Ferdinand and his happy marriage to Sophie who died alongside him that June day in Sarajevo one hundred years ago But what a fascinating tale it all makesNot born to be Emperor this reserved and shy man found himself suddenly heir to the Austro Hungarian crown upon the suicide of his cousin the Crown Prince Franz married Sophie for love She was aristocratic but crucially not royal The Archduke and his Countess endured years of slights and snubs from the imperial family in Vienna The couple s children were barred from the succession So strained was Franz s relationship with the old Emperor his uncle that the Archduke s children only met Franz Josef twice in their livesBut Franz Ferdinand had ideas for Austria Hungary which may have prevented the Empire s extinction after the Great War Following a visit to the USA he considered re modelling the crumbling Behemoth on federal linesKing and Woolmans have written a very readable book with useful family trees and dramatis personnae My only slight criticism is that the fairytale motif was a little overused the repeated comparisons between Franz and Sophie s love story and the Cinderella fable came to jar after a while But otherwise a great book Thought provoking too I always remember my school history teacher asking what would have happened if Gavrilo Princip had missed Twisted personallyThe assassination and the The Exploration of the Male Anatomy politics surrounding it are condensed into a few chapters The book is really the story of Franz Ferdinand and his happy marriage to Sophie who died alongside him that June day in Sarajevo one hundred years ago But what a fascinating tale it all makesNot born to be Emperor this reserved and shy man found himself suddenly heir to the Austro Hungarian crown upon the suicide of his cousin the Crown Prince Franz married Sophie for love She was aristocratic but crucially not royal The Archduke and his Countess endured years of slights and snubs from the imperial family in Vienna The couple s children were barred from the succession So strained was Franz s relationship with the old Emperor his uncle that the Archduke s children only met Franz Josef twice in their livesBut Franz Ferdinand had ideas for Austria Hungary which may have All Night Long (Nannies, personnae My only slight criticism is that the fairytale motif was a little overused the repeated comparisons between Franz and Sophie s love story and the Cinderella fable came to jar after a while But otherwise a great book Thought
