The Romanovs by Virginia Cowles

(Peter the Great)

Virginia Cowles writes that the Romanovs were 'savage and perverse'.  She certainly focuses on the sensational and gruesome aspects of their characters!  Most of them either liked murdering their enemies and anyone who rebelled against them.  Many of the women were almost as promiscuous and evil-tempered as the men. This is an interesting whirlwind tour of the history of the wild Russian rulers, and a good introduction.  However, I'd advise you to read this after meals.  Otherwise, all the killing may turn you off your food!
