I could start by telling you about Princess Alfhild who in the 5th century made the choice of becoming a pirate over getting married… or what about Princess Charlotte of Prussia who threw a sex party in 1891 only to later blackmail her own guests for attending. Shemay have been the original mean girl, but she way classier than Pauline, the Princess with zero inhibitians way back in 1804, just ask her personal portrait artist!
Filled with heart-pounding adventure, intrigue, romance, sex, power, murder, and mayhem, these stories are better than any fairy tale! You will meet princesses who became warriors, were imprisoned, lied and manipulated, murdered, used sex, or dressed like men to maintain power. Some were villians, some were heroes, and some were just plain crazy. But none of these princesses felt constrained to our notions of “lady-like” behavior.
