King Edward VIII

Philip Ziegler (Author)
Available

Description

The authorised life story of the king who gave up his throne for love, by one of our most distinguished biographers.

In this masterly authorized biography, Philip Ziegler reveals the complex personality of Edward VIII, the only British monarch to have voluntarily renounced the throne.

With unique access to the Royal Archives, Ziegler overturns many myths about Edward and tells his side of the story - from his glamorous existence as Prince of Wales to his long decline in semi-exile in France. At the heart of the book is an unflinchingly honest examination of Edward's all-consuming passion for Wallis Simpson, which led to his dramatic abdication.

Elegant and devastating, this is the most convincing portrait of Edward ever published.
