ROYAL GATHERINGS was inspired by the Eurohistory Magazine's section, What's In a Photo. This section that has proven to be the publication's most popular feature. The authors have analyzed thirty-eight photos taken at royal gatherings. Each photo is given a chapter and in each chapter, the authors have provided short biographies of the royal personages included in the photo, providing not only insightful information about the protagonists, but also a very unique selection of vignettes on most of the royals covered in the book. Co-authored by Ilana D. Miller and Arturo E. Beéche, it promises to be an excellent addition to Eurohistory's growing library of unique titles.   Ranging from the overthrow of King Francesco II of the Two Sicilies in 1859 to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este in 1914, ROYAL GATHERINGS examines 38 group photos taken at various royalty get-togethers between those years. Each of the thirty-eight chapters focuses on one particular gathering. In each gathering the authors provided vignettes, or what Prince Michael of Greece calls "la petite histoire," on each of the royal personages featured in the chosen photograph. Besides written stories on each of the royalties present in any of the given group photos, the authors have also included many individual photos to accompany the text. The book contains more than 250 photos, as well as an extensive family tree that  includes most of the royalties discussed in the book. ROYAL GATHERINGS is 172-long glossy pages, hardbound.
