Wilhelm von Habsburg wore the uniform of an Austrian officer, the court regalia of a Habsburg archduke, the simple suit of a Parisian exile, the decorations of the Order of the Golden Fleece and, every so often, a dress. He spoke the Italian of his archduke mother, the German of his archduke father, the English of his British royal friends, the Polish of the country his father wished to rule and the Ukrainian of the land Wilhelm wished to rule himself.

Timothy Snyder's masterful biography is not only a reconstruction of the life of this extraordinary man - a man who remained loyal to his Ukrainian dreams even after the country's dissolution in 1921- but also charts the final collapse of the ancien regime in Europe and the rise of a new world order.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Riotous and engrossing - Independent

Snyder's portrait of the Hapsburgs in all their eccentricity is a delight...Snyder is exceptional in bringing not only a vast expertise to the subject, but also an elegant style and a gift for narrative - Sunday Times

As a vivid portrait of a vanished world the book is superb, being both prodigiously researched and elegantly written - Daily Telegraph

He is one of this country's most talented and innovative historians of Central and Eastern Europe... I hugely admired The Reconstruction of Nations and eagerly look forward to The Red Prince - Niall Ferguson

Snyder's biography brilliantly baits his readers with a glittering subject - The Times, Books of the Year
