Présentation de l'éditeur

Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother was called the 'most successful queen since Cleopatra' and the 'best queen consort ever'. Her personality was so captivating that even her arch-enemy the Duchess of Windsor wrote about 'her legendary charm' and when she died just a few months short of the impressive age of 102, she was covered in praise for a long life well lived. But there was another Elizabeth the Queen Mother behind the smiling granny, and the untold story of the life she really lived is far more fascinating and moving than the authorised version which has been peddled for the eighty eight years since she became royal, and which has formed the basis of all biographies written about her to date. Partly this is because none of the previous authors has had access to many of the sources that Lady Colin Campbell had, largely by virtue of being born into a prominent international family with royal connections, and having married into the ducal family of Argyll, which is also connected to the Royal Family. Those authors who did have access to some of the sources have been careful to follow the 'party line' and have merely hinted at a few of the more intriguing aspects of the Queen Mother's life, though none of the truly fascinating material has even been touched upon. Her sources, all of whom will be revealed in the book itself, include several members of the Royal Family; many Scottish and English aristocrats, and friends and relations of Elizabeth and the other members of the Windsor and Strathmore families.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating ideas 31 mars 2012
Par hyppatia - Publié sur Amazon.com

I enjoyed reading this well written book with its many insights and historical facts. I have always thought the royals should be subject to DNA tests but too many scandals would ensue and the royal "blood line" must always be perfect so that will never happen. I can thoroughly recommend this as giving a new insight into 20th century history.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Negative reviews on the hardback are unjustified 30 décembre 2012
Par CBP the bookworm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I bought this book from this page, but when I came back to write a review, it was the hardback link that came up in the searches (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1250018978/ ), and the negativity of the reviews startled me. Yes, to some extent the book could be called one-sided - but in my opinion that's primarily in an attempt to counterbalance the "dear sweet lady" side of the Queen Mother that has been promulgated for so long. Lady Campbell's own social credentials are impeccable, and so are her sources for this book. She quotes extensively from diaries, letters to, from, and about the Queen Mother, opinions by those close to her, and both royal and Glamis archives, and the book is well-footnoted. Reviewers who have dismissed this as simply petty and vengeful, from a woman who disliked the Queen Mother, have failed to appreciate the depth of research underpinning this book and the extent to which the quoted sources tell a truer story than has previously been allowed.

There is a certain amount of repetition, primarily as a result of the discursive style in which the book is written, but it's not unbearable. I subtracted a star for that, and for the number of times I found spaces and hyphens omitted (this edition needs a good proof-read!), but I think the content is excellent.

Par C. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com

I suspect that the author has an agenda here. While I doubt that the Queen Mother was the saint she is often portrayed to be, this book relies heavily on unproven (and un-provable) gossip, such as the idea that the Queen Mother was born to a cook on her family's estate and raised as Lady Elizabeth because her parents wanted more children and couldn't have them, or the idea that both the current Queen Elizabeth and her sister Margaret were conceived in a gynecologist's office by a crude method of artificial insemination (think turkey baster). Every last word of it MAY be the truth, but the author has no way of knowing that except for society gossip of the time. That's not research.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Untold story of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. 16 juin 2013

Definitely a must read. This book revealed another side of gross manipulation organised by those who should know better. Unbelievable deceit exercised and left to run riot. Learnt a few things I didn't know previously. I understand why this book was written after the Queen Mother died. Interestingly the contents have not been disputed!!

Par LN Bayne - Publié sur Amazon.com

Bought as an ebook on Kindle. I really am not very sure about this book. She makes very scandalous statements about the Queen Mother. I am sure the Queen Mum can't have been as sneaky, malicious and underhanded as this book displays her. I read the author's book about Lady Diana and LCC had a very deep dislike of her as well. One person sued her to get a book off the market. Lady Colin Campbell pretended it was fiction and with a few revisions it was back on the market. I don't think you can truly give an unbiased biography of some one you seem to hate. Lady Colin Campbell was born with a genital abnormality that caused to be raised as a boy until she was 18. She had corrective surgery at 21. She says she always felt female and it was misinformed doctor's advice that caused her to be raised as a boy. I read a short online bio to see if it could explain her bitterness. Her childhood was very difficult as she was sent to a boy's boarding school. Perhaps this explains why she seems to hate the world. I don't think the Queen Mum was as sweet and loving at all times but hardly as bad as this book portrays. If you like gossip from uncertain sources about famous people and can stand her constant name dropping and inserting herself into the Queen Mum's bio, read it. Otherwise don't.
