Aristocracy

Hundreds of years ago the houses of Habsburg, Hohenzollern and Wittelsbach ruled over the empires in Europe. Today, the aristocratic houses of this continent dominate the headlines of the magazines rather than the countries they represent here and there. The splendour and glamour of the aristocrats, who, with their court records and all sorts of other traditions, are far removed from the world of ordinary people, fascinate millions. At the same time, some royal heads of state today enjoy more moral authority and popularity than the elected presidents or prime ministers - think of Elizabeth II, for example. From Old Fritz to Catherine the Great to the "queen of people's hearts ", this collection contains picture dossiers on the monarchs and dynasties of the past and present.
