From Norman Davies, the acclaimed author of Europe: A History, comes the magical history of Europes lost realms, selected as a Book of the Year by the Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, New Statesman, Independent, Guardian and Financial Times. Europes history is littered with kingdoms, duchies, empires and republics which have now disappeared but which were once fixtures on the map of their age. What happened to the once-great Mediterranean Empire of Aragon? Where did the half-forgotten kingdoms of Burgundy go? Which current nations will one day become a distant memory too? This original and enthralling book peers through the cracks of history to discover the stories of lost realms across the centuries. Dazzling, provocative and brilliant. (Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times, Books of the Year). A luminous account ...there are few better ways of understanding the multilayered splendours and horrors of Europes past than through the pages of this wise, humane and unfailingly engaging book. (John Adamson, Sunday Telegraph). Vanished Kingdoms is great history and also great art. It is written with verve, passion and profound empathy.
