Reviews

"It is Greg King and Penny Wilson's aim, in"Twilight of Empire," to provide a satisfying explanation for the incident at Mayerling. In this they have succeeded marvelously, offering up a lucid and entertaining historical portrait along the way." --The Wall Street Journal

"[A] fascinating reconstruction of the complex historical, political, and personal framework that preceded the tragedy...This fine example of historical detective work by the always-entertaining and-enlightening King-and-Wilson duo is all the more compelling because this unfortunate event had a resounding ripple effect that contributed to both the demise of the Habsburg Empire and the onset of WWI." - Booklist"[T]he authors lay out a variety of theories for readers to ponder. Recommended for fans of imperial histories, royal scandals, or tragic romances." - Kirkus

"[A] lurid tale of lust and death in the waning days of the Habsburg Empire...Royal historians King and Wilson use archival research to effectively debunk the rumors that still swirl around Mayerling, revealing the tragic personal histories of its key figures while providing an evocative look at Viennese high society." - Publisher's Weekly
