The Featured Book of the Week is Alix and Nicky by Virginia Rounding, about the marriage of Russia's last tsar and tsarina. Published in January 2012.

The World of Royalty Blog is moving to a new location! The blog's home new home is worldofroyalty.com (someone else used to own that domain name, but it's mine now). I'm still getting things organized on the new site, but you can take a sneak peek now if you wish. And don't worry -- the main Royalty.nu site isn't going anywhere.

2013 UPDATE: The World of Royalty Blog has now merged with the Royal News Blog. Worldofroyalty.com currently redirects to the Royal News Blog, although I may find another use for the domain later.
