A GRIPPING ROYAL SAGA OF FAMILY, MURDER AND AMBITION TOLD BY A RELUCTANT PRINCESS
Part memoir, part royal history – this is the intimate and enchanting true story of Christina Oxenberg’s discovery of her remarkable and illustrious Serbian heritage
In 2014 Christina Oxenberg visited Serbia for the first time on the trail of her family history. What she discovered was not only the astonishing story of her origins – a descendant of the Karadjordjevic dynasty who rose from shepherds to kings – but also the hair-raising history of Europe and its royals from the 18th century to the present day.
Deftly weaving Oxenberg’s own family history with that of Europe’s tumultuous recent past, Dynasty is a gripping and at times controversial royal saga, illustrated with 8 pages of beautiful images from Christina’s private collection.
Christina Oxenberg is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Karageorge, the founder of modern Serbia. She has written several previous books including Royal Blue (Simon & Schuster), and for publications such as The Sunday Times Magazine, Tatler and Penthouse. Having grown up in New York and London she now lives in Key West, Florida.
