Sex with Kings: 500 Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revenge : From the dawn of time, power has been a mighty aphrodisiac. The royal mistress, having conquered a king, often ran his kingdom, wielding her sexuality as a scepter. Sex With Kings is trailblazing in its exploration of this intriguing phenomenon - the position of royal mistress at European Courts, the fascinating women who filled it, and how their responsibilities and rewards changed over the centuries. It's a nonfiction journey through 500 years that takes the reader into the throne rooms and bedrooms of Europe's most powerful kings, and a chapter of women's history which has remained unwritten - until now.
