The aristocracy is full of scandal and intrigue. Lusty lords and naughty nobles have taken our history by storm. In this book you will see why our nobles are not such a noble lot after all. Many have been involved in scandals linked to kidnap, murder, rape, poisoning, cruelty, seduction, avarice, violence, torture and more! Some were happy to hob-nob with Hitler, one spent a fortune on 2,000 male prostitutes, another dressed all his male servants in yellow from head to toe and one changed sex before claiming her (his) aristocratic title. There are tales of blowing hundreds of millions of pounds, bankruptcy, jail terms, drug-taking, casual sex, gambling, making naughty movies and robbery!

Reviews

There are takes of fortunes gambled away, spent on prostitutes, drink and drugs. The stories are sectioned into eras of history going right back through the ages from the present day. We tend to think that modern day morals have declined, that the twenty-first century is full of wicked, deceitful people who would sell their Granny to the highest bidder. Think again! Some of the so-called nobility from times gone by would laugh at our modern day 'scandals' - and they got away with it, and carried on doing it. Full of tales and intrigue that would delight the editors of Heat and The Sun these days, this is a gem of a book. - Random Things Through My Letterbox Blog
