To be a princess--spoiled and adored! Few real princesses have enjoyed such a life. The real princesses have been lost in our love of fairytales. Princess Palace explores their lives and loves, adventures and tragedies. Let’s celebrate and commiserate with these most (un?)fortunate of women.

Playboy princes, middle-aged weddings and untimely deaths. How else could the 18-year-old daughter of King George III's FOURTH son have inherited the British empire? But for several twists of fate, we might never have coined the word "Victorian."
