Why did Bonnie Prince Charlie turn down the throne of America? How were Napoleon and Wellington related? Was the Tay Bridge disaster the result of a failed attempt to assassinate Karl Marx? David Baldwin uncovers some startling and fascinating facts in this survey of royal prayer through the ages, which ranges from Queen Hatchepsut of Ancient Egypt to Diana, Princess of Wales via George Washington and the ill-fated Russian Imperial Family. Culminating in the contributions made by The Queen and the Royal Family today, the author demonstrates that royal prayers can have immense consequence for the psyche of the nation as well as the individual.
