Secret Lives of the Tsars: Three Centuries of Autocracy, Debauchery, Betrayal, Murder, and Madness from Romanov RussiaSecret Lives of the Tsars: Three Centuries of Autocracy, Debauchery, Betrayal, Murder, and Madness from Romanov Russia by Michael Farquhar
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Genre: Non-Fiction/History


Michael Farquhar takes us back through history highlighting all the horrible and weird things that the Tsars of Russia were guilty of during their reigns. The book does discuss every ruler that the Russian people had during the three centuries of Romanov rule but I did find that Catherine the Great and Nicholas's (the last Russian tsar) rule made up most of the content of the book, going on for more than one chapter which is all that most of the other Tsars got. I did find this book a bit boring since I knew most of the information anyway due to my love of history but if you are unfamiliar with the lives of the Romanov Tsars then this book will be sure to entertain and enlighten you to all of the best "gossip" about the Tsars.

Thanks for stopping by,
Amy
