We all have a vision of fairy-tale princesses, but what are princesses really like in real life? Princesses Behaving Badly tells the true stories of famous as well as little-known princesses throughout history and from around the world. Filled with heart-pounding adventure, intrigue, romance, sex, power, murder, and mayhem, these stories are better than any fairy tale! You will meet princesses who became warriors, were imprisoned, lied and manipulated, murdered, used sex, or dressed like men to maintain power. Some were villians, some were heroes, and some were just plain crazy. But none of these princesses felt constrained to our notions of "lady-like" behavior.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Forget conventional fairy-tale endings...From pirate princesses to princesses with bizarre beauty routines to warrior royalty, this book shows there's a lot more to life than a cookie-cutter story."--Bustle

"An important and impressive contribution to the feminist narrative."--Bust magazine

"Princess, diva, pain in the ass -- all terms that resonate throughout Princesses Behaving Badly, which tells of royal terrors who make modern gossip queens seem as demure as Snow White."--New York Post

"History has produced some very real, very dangerous ladies who make their movie and book counterparts seem lame by comparison. From Nazi spy to bloodthirsty killer, these women were not meek in any way. Heck, one of them even wore a mask of raw veal! You'll find out all this and more in this little book of miniature biographies."--Geeks of Doom

"McRobbie includes a good mix that will satisfy anyone who loves tales of history and audacity."--Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Bookworm Sez

"McRobbie gives many of these princesses exactly what their stories require: a narrative that tells their stories in broad strokes, without omitting any of the juicy details." --ForeWord Reviews

"Irreverent, informative, and entertaining, Princesses Behaving Badly is the perfect companion to royal novels." --Jennifer Conner, Literate Housewife

"[Princesses Behaving Badly] is a major addition to feminist libraries, and more importantly, it's lots of fun!"--Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
