    4.5 Audiobook With the royal wedding approaching, I ve found myself listening to and royal biographies lately I m always searching for anything happening to do with European royalty, because one can only hear so much about Queen Victoria Finding George and Marina Duke and Duchess of Kent, felt like the perfect opportunity to learn about the Greek and Danish royal houses, even if it was only through their connection to the house of Windsor.Not long ago, I read about the wedding of George and Marina through the eyes of Rhys Bowen s fictional character Lady Georgianna Runnoch in Royal Blood, the fourth installment in the series Her Royal Spyness Obviously, that was a fictional account, but it was enough to pique my interest.I m fairly well acquainted with the life of Prince George, Duke of Kent However, I knew very little about his wife before hearing George and Marina, especially about her life before marriage Luckily for me, George and Marina focused heavily on Marina I m not sure if that was by desig...

    Marina was the big focus of this book with a few chapters in the middle devoted solely to George, and a chapter or two on their marriage She was quite racy after George s death for the time and for royal women I didn t like the lack of citations, as some statements without quotes seemed to be of dubious origin George s partying was addressed thank god which some royal biographers would probably have steered clear of Not bad if you are interested in them, but not for anyon...

    If you want to read about 7,000 people who share the same 8 names, do I have a book for you This was about the surrounding royalty than it was about Marina and George It obviously touched on their life together but honestly, it was 85% other people whom the book focused on.I find royalty to be obscene, ridiculous, and utterly fascinating, but this book casually brushed over some of the most important moments in the last cent...

    The book provided an overview of George and Marina s lives and their place within their wider extended families Warwick provides an especially detailed account of Marina s connections to Europe s royal houses, particularly the Romanovs Both of Marina s grandmothers made narrow escapes from the Russian Revolution Marina s fashion sense and George s flair for interior decoration are also covered I would have been interested to read detail and a broader range of sources about their Commonweal...

    Thanks to Rhys Bowen s Her Royal spyness series, I became interested in George, Duke of Kent, who I knew nothing about This was a fascinating biography and it was fun to see all the real characters that show.up in the fiction book If you are a fan of Royalty, this is a must read The Duchess of Kent, Marina, a cousin to Prince Phillip was a beautiful, much...

    Christopher Warwick s George and Marina is a competently executed biography of Prince George The Duke of Kent and his wife Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark I was not surprised that Mr Warwick failed to examine the con...

    This was the biography of all the people AROUND George and Marina I don t really feel like I learned many details about GM s lives Not a lot to say I guess.It was a litany of names and dates and sadly I was confused fr...

    This is quite short and rudimentary Just the facts, ma am, although they didn t avoid a couple of rather colorful anecdotes about George s alleged bi sexuality I do have the Greek royal family a bit straighter in my mind but I can t say ...
