First edition. Jacket faintly toned. 1970 Hard Cover. 320 pp. Bullied and beaten by her father the King, abused by her mother the Queen, betrayed and spied upon by her governesses, young Princess Wilhelmina had almost as tortured an upbringing as her brother Frederick, the future King of Prussia. When at last she escaped to her little island of pleasure at Bayreuth she set down with cynical clarity of her time all the scabrous intrigues, the devious treachery, the scandals of royal folly, tyranny and lust with which she had been beset while she was a political pawn in the marriage-market.
