Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The Times Literary Supplement praised the Almanach de Gotha for a ""punctilious itemization of titles, lineage and heraldry [aiming] for scholarship rather than sensation"". Sir Stephen Runciman wrote in the Spectator""In this present age, which we are often told sees the twilight of royalty, it is comforting to be able to welcome the reappearance of the most distinguished of genealogical almanacs."" The 2014 191st edition follows the successful format of previous editions with families listed by rank in their corresponding parts. Births, marriages and deaths of all members of the Gotha have been updated and it remains the only publication to list all the members of all the imperial, royal, princely and ducal houses and the courts of the Holy Roman Empire. Even family disputes are handled by the careful noting of competing claims. This new edition also sees a full list of the households of the courts of Europe, diplomatic listings and significant updates in the chapter devoted to the Holy See, including the comprehensive listings of new appointments made by the Pontiff to the College of Cardinals and elsewhere. In addition, this new edition includes the latest successor to the throne of Belgium and the births of the Duchess of Gotland of Sweden, Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma and Prince George of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is the official and authorised publication. The most comprehensive listing of its kind, with an impeccable pedigree, the book remains an essential reference for genealogists, libraries and scholars. There is and never has been a comparable source, a book once described as ""the second most important ever published"".
