REVIEW: There is so much that can be said about this book but I'm afraid that most of those things contain spoilers. This book is basically a reference for naughty princesses, both real and made up.
The women in this book have all stood their ground and made it clear that men ARE NOT the better sex. No matter if its war, politics, sex scandals, murder or ruling a country, these princesses have all had enough and they decided to take over and raise hell.
This book is good for anyone who wants to write a paper for school about princesses or rebellious women. I wish I actually had this book when I was in 10th grade when I was wrote about female murderers.
It have little sections of really short descriptions of certain princesses that I guess weren't known enough to have more written about them. Anything from pirates to cross-dressers to wrestlers is what these princesses are.
It is shocking to read exactly how people lived before us. I think China has the worst when it comes to royal murders. People killed their mothers, brothers, cousins and even their own children just to have a clear line at the throne.
I think my favorite princess out of the entire book was Isabella of France. Her story also shows that homosexuality has existed for an extremely long time.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about history and especially those who love reading about strong women taking a stand.
Overall, I have the book 4/5 Kitties.
This book as sent to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
