Maria Fitzherbert by James Munson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The notorious affair of George IV and Maria Fitzherbert is one of the most bizarre episodes in the history of the royal family. It is the story of a young Catholic widow who became the secret wife of the heir to the throne because she had refused to become his mistress. James Munson reveals a genuine love story between the spoilt, egocentric prince and the older woman who brought peace and order to his life of restlessness and excess; resulting in a marriage that defied English law and broke all the rules of monarchy. Two themes dominate - the love of a kind-hearted woman for a charming but faithless prince, and the perilous state of the monarchy in this eventful period of history.
