Gay Monarch: The Life and Pleasures of Edward VIIGay Monarch: The Life and Pleasures of Edward VII by Virginia Cowles
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A factual description of the life, times and influence of Albert Edward who became Edward VII. Who although lived through the sober and rigid society instigated by his parents was able to create his own liberal society. But who became vastly interested and influential in British foreign affairs to some degree because he was related to virtually all the royal houses.
An interesting read of an era that I knew very little of so consequently I learnt some new facts.
