Description

Reviews

'The book is particularly inspiring . in that it takes the institution of monarchy with all its ceremonies, backgrounds, political-religious ideas, and contexts seriously, even in a time of (supposedly) anti-monarchical nationalism, colonialism, and modernity. This study shows once again how influential monarchical ideas and conventions remained after the French Revolution.'
Cathleen Sarti, Royal Studies Journal

'It is always a pleasure to write a review on a book that is so easily readable and really adds to one's own knowledge in a significant manner. [.] The book is particularly inspiring-from the perspective of a pre-modern royal studies scholar-in that it takes the institution of monarchy with all its ceremonies, backgrounds, political-religious ideas, and contexts seriously, even in a time of (supposedly) anti-monarchical nationalism, colonialism, and modernity. This study shows once again how influential monarchical ideas and conventions remained after the French Revolution.'
Cathleen Sarti, Royal Studies Journal
