The Romanovs tells the story of 20 tsars and tsarinas, some touched by genius, some by madness, but all inspired by holy autocracy and imperial ambition. Montefiore’s gripping chronicle reveals their secret world of unlimited power and ruthless empire-building, overshadowed by palace conspiracy, family rivalries, sexual decadence, and wild extravagance, and peopled by a cast of
adventurers, courtesans, revolutionaries and poets, from Ivan the Terrible to Tolstoy, from Queen Victoria to Lenin.
Simon Sebag Montefiore is a bestselling historian and novelist, whose books have been published in over forty languages. His book, Jerusalem: The Biography, won The Book of the Year Prize from the Jewish Book Council. He holds a PhD in History from Cambridge University.
