Eurohistory's Newest Book… ALBANY – One Family, Two Destinies

It is with great pleasure that we announce to our readers the publication of our newest book, ALBANY – One Family, Two Destinies.

The inspiration for this book emanated from a conversation the authors had with HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, who had traveled to The Hague to be at the official presentation of his memoirs, I Did It My Way... The prince, whose biography he wrote with the assistance of Arturo E. Beéche, suggested that perhaps a book on all the descendants of the Duke of Albany, his great-grandfather, would be of interest to royalty enthusiasts and book collectors. 

The fateful meeting took place during the Third Royal Gatherings Conference, a yearly event hosted by Eurohistory and Hoogstraten English Bookstore, in November 2015. The previous year, Mr. Golden had authored a similar book on the descendants of the Duke of Connaught. In 2013, Mr. Beéche had authored The Coburgs of Europe, a book that Prince Andreas considers to be the "gold standard" on his family's history. Hence, to the prince it seemed like a logical suggestion that both authors would cooperate in the writing of the present volume. Both Mr. Golden and Mr. Beéche are deeply thankful to Prince Andreas for encouraging, not only the subject of this book, but also their joint effort. 

The authors hope that in years to come, they will be able to cooperate in further publications on various royal topics. 

The images used in this book come from the private collection of Mr. Robert Golden, as well as that of Mr. Arturo E. Beéche. A considerable number of images came from the vast Eurohistory Royal Photo Archive, founded by Mr. Arturo E. Beéche in 1997. Some images were kindly donated by several descendants of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone. A few were donated by HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, whose considerable collection was curated by Mr. Arturo E. Beéche. The Swedish Royal Palace in Stockholm must be thanked as well for providing images of the current King and his family.

ALBANY – One Family, Two Destinies will begin selling on AMAZON ( December 12 and we expect to start shipping copies immediately!

The book can also be purchased at our usual supporting venues: MAJESTY (which will have a full feature of the book in the January 2017 issue), Librairie Galignani in Paris, and, of course, Hoogstraten English Bookstore in The Hague (

ALBANY – One Dynasty, Two Destinies

Eurohistory is proud to bring to you our 28th book!

ALBANY – One Dynasty, Two Destinies is a photographic history of the descendants of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, Queen Victoria's youngest son.

Married to the former Princess Helen of Waldeck-Pyrmont, the very talented Prince Leopold did not allow hemophilia to hinder the successful life he dreamt of leading.

Although he did not live long enough to meet his youngest child, a baby boy named Charles Edward, Leopold left an indelible mark on his children.

Today the descendants of the Duke and Duchess of Albany are found in England, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the USA, Finland, and, of course, Sweden!

This handsomely illustrated work (525 images in 272 glossy pages), covers all the descendants of Prince Leopold and Princess Helen. The authors, both noted royal historians with nearly twenty books to their name, have done extensive research to bring to the reader the most comprehensive collection of Albany descendants ever published. Among the photos used in the book, many were donated by descendants of Prince Leopold. In fact, no other published work has ever brought to the reader such a large selection of photos of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, and her descendants. Also, it is worth mentioning that many of the descendants of the 2nd Duke of Albany, later known as Carl Eduard, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, contributed rare images to include in this exquisite production. Among the families and dynasties included in this book are: Athlone, Abel Smith, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Sweden, Castell-Rüdenhausen, Saxe-Meiningen, Hohenzollern, to name but a few.

Readers will be mesmerized by the stories told by the authors, as well as by the uniqueness of the images chosen to illustrate their first joint project!

Kudos to Mr Golden and Mr Beéche  for putting together beautiful book filled with spellbinding narrative, as well as countess never-before-seen images of this little-known branch of Queen Victoria's descendants!

The book will be out in about four weeks and will sell for $48.95 plus shipping. We expect that our usual partners (MAJESTY, Hoogstraten English Bookstore, and Galignani) will sell the book. It will also be available through Eurohistory and our AMAZON seller page.

Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Meiningen and her son Prince Constantin at Schloß Greinburg, Austria.

Simon and Daniel von coburg, sons of the late Prince Adrian of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
