For centuries, the royal physicians, surgeons & apothecaries have played a fundamental role in the lives of the monarchy, not only ministering to their health but also becoming caught up in the politics that surrounded the power of the head of state. Some were involved in notorious & sometimes bizarre events outside the royal household; for ex., Sir William Gull was implicated in the unsolved Jack the Ripper murders. Here is a detailed look at the relationships between monarchs & their doctors -- some with a strong foundation of trust, others built on bitter hatred -- & reveals the complex & influential position the doctors held. With its strong & vivid narrative, the book provides an unusual perspective on the monarchy through the history of medical men. Illus.
