An interesting glimpse into the lives of some of the royal women in history. Although the book itself had some interesting tid-bits, I found myself annoyed at the voice of the narrator. I listened to this on audiobook. But I pushed through the irritant, and finished listening to the entire thing. Wh...

I have a lot of small issues with how this book is worded throughout, but what really made me dislike it was the final chapter about "mad princesses." It was so over-the-top ableist I don't even know where to begin. This isn't my blog or a place to discuss prejudice so I don't want to bother going i...

Frivolous, rather tedious, but does provide snippets about some interesting princesses for more in-depth "research".

The stories of the "princesses" (not all were really princesses) are really interesting, but the style of this book was not for me. It was too informal and I'm not sure the goal of the author to debunk the Disney-princesses-fairy tales was achieved... It was not properly done, in my opinion, but it ...

At the same time, however, we kind of do -- witness the world's fascination with Kate Middleton, the pretty commoner who married Britain's Prince William to become Catherine, Duchess of Cambrid...

"Princesses Behaving Badly: Real Stories from History Without the Fairy-Tale Endings" by L. Rodriguez McRobbie. The book itself has some chapters and characters worth reading, but at the same time it adds details and stories that maybe one can take as "they do not belong in this book", or at least...

This book was given to me as an uncorrected proof, thank you Quirk books! Opinions in this review may be different from the finalized book. "Well behaved women rarely make history" is a quote that is famous for its misappropriated concept as well as who said it (contrary to many internet sites it ...

For every princess who married the prince and lived happily ever after, there are scores of princesses who did not. In Princesses Behaving Badly, Linda Rodriguez McRobbie seeks to show just how cruel, and oftentimes dangerous, life as a princess can be. The stories presented do much to offset the fa...

An absolutely fascinating collection of “royal” women, though the title is a serious misnomer. This book actually collects empresses, khans, ranis, commoners posing as royals, and yes, some princesses. Many of them didn’t behave badly, just differently from the cultural norms of the time, though som...
