'When the eighteen-year-old Victoria ascended the throne of England, she was horrified to learn that, for twenty-eight years, her father, the Duke of Kent, had lived with a mistress - he who she had always thought 'the best of brothers'. Yet there was never anything shameful in the association, no scandal ever disrupting the love between the Duke and the beautiful, gay, witty Madame Julie de St. Laurent. Why then, it has been asked, did he break with her? His plea was that duty came before love.duty to marry and produce an heir for the English throne. The author, however, following their joint lives from the garrison Rock of Gibraltar to the icy wastes of Canada and finally to the ostentatious salons of Georgian London has come to a different conclusion - not duty, but pride; one more vainglorious effort, after a lifetime's thwarted ambitions, to achieve popularity and the esteem of the country.' 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall.
