Collection of the week: Charlotte Zeepvat Royal History

Charlotte Zeepvat is a respected historian of European royalty, and author of a number of books on the subject including a biography of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, and two fascinating compendiums that bring together rare and often surprising photographs of Queen Victoria's extended family and the Romanov dynasty. We are delighted to represent Charlotte's unique photographic collection, amassed over the years to include many intimate and unusual portraits of British and European royalty, all enhanced with detailed captions based on Charlotte's in-depth knowledge. With the centenary of the murder of Tsar Nicholas II and his family next year, the material on Russian royalty is of particular interest. Also notable is a set of enchanting photographs of the Duke of Edinburgh as a small boy, together with images of his parents, four sisters and their families. The collection spans the mid-19th century to the 1940s and traces the fates of British, German, Russian, Spanish, Greek, French and Scandinavian royalty through turbulent times and toppling thrones.

The Charlotte Zeepvat royal history collection complements what is already a key area of strength at the library.
