It's no secret that we here at Bas Bleu are fascinated by the royal family (we've certainly carried our share of biographies and swag dedicated to the monarchy), but this book is a bit different. Behind the Throne is an intriguing look at the life of royalty from the perspective of those around them: advisors, accountants, cooks, maids, and all the other "below stairs" individuals essential to the day-to-day running of such a massive household. From traditional positions such as governess or member of the Privy Council, to newer (but no less essential) careers in IT and Human Resources, Behind the Throne is an eye-opening account of attendants, servants, and courtiers, spanning five centuries, from Queen Elizabeth I to Queen Elizabeth II. You'll never look at royalty the same way again! (SM)
