Order form: The Memoirs of Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

Readers will find inn this posting an order form for our latest book, I DID IT MY WAY ... The Memoirs of HH Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha!

This is a fantastic and candid memoir of a well-lived full life. With more than 300 rare images cataloguing not only his life (public and private), but also his famed dynasty. Prince Andreas sheds light on the Coburgs' amazing tale and role in European history!

The book is 248  glossy pages long, hardbound and contains not only, as mentioned before, over 300 exquisite images, but also a double-page spread family tree!

The price of this Must-Have volume is $48.95 plusS/H ($8.00 in the USA, $26.00 overseas)

A long-time royal book collector described this book as,

"I've started reading the book "I did it my way" of Prince Andreas. 

"My compliments to both you (Arturo Beéche) and the Prince!

I've started reading yesterday and had great difficulty putting it down!

It is very well written, well researched and I love that fragments of diaries have been used and printed. I personally love to read in a person's own words.

The mother of Prince Andreas wrote very well and at times very about her undergarments and clothes on her wedding day!

It is also wonderful to read the memories the Prince has about his Grandmother Coburg as he calls her, Princess Victoria Adelheid.

She interests me, and one of the prides in my collection is an old very beautiful photo of her and her signature from Veste Coburg may 1928.

I have just started reading the book, not halfway, so I have a lot more to look forward to."

The sister of a European king reacted to reading the book quite concisely ... 

"Dear Mr Beéche, it is simply SUPER!"

A fellow royal author said,  ...

"Dear Arturo, I think it is simply the best of the books you have published. Kudos to you and Pr. Andreas! He tells a compelling story, plus those photographs. How do you do it?"

So this holiday season, why not give it a try and add, I did it my way to your collection!

The book is also readily available at AMAZON!

Meiningen: A New Baby Heir

Prince Constantin of Saxe-Meiningen became a father this past July with the arrival of his first son, Prince Michael!

The birth took place in Switzerland, where the baby's parents reside.

This is the first Saxe-Meiningen birth since Prince Constantin, the only son of the late Prince Friedrich of Saxe-Meiningen and Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Given the family's request for privacy, we cannot share photos of the baby and his father. But he is a healthy boy and expected to carry the family name one generation further.

Coburg: Royal Baptism

On Saturday, November 14, 2015, baby Prince Philipp of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was baptized in the private Chapel at Schloß Callenberg.

Among the nearly 100 guests were several prominent members of Europe's royalty: King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of the Belgians, Hereditary Prince and Princess Bernhard of Baden, Hereditary Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg (along with his longtime girlfriend Carina Axelson), the Fürstin of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Meiningen with her daughter Princess Maria Alix, Hereditary Prince and Princess Carl of Wrede, to name a few. Coburg family members present included: Prince Andreas (Head of House) with his wife Princess Carin and their other children (Stephanie and Alexander); the proud parents Hereditary Prince Hubertus and his wife Kelly along with their eldest daughter, adorable Princess Katharina; and Prince Peter, a first cousin of Prince Andreas.

This was a private family event. Hence at the request of the family, no photos will be available.

New Book: House of Thurn und Taxis

A new book on the Thurn und Taxis family is about to hit bookstores!

Eurohistory will carry this volume, which promises to be quite a,mazing as it was coauthored by none other than Fürstin Gloria von Thurn und Taxis (née Schönburg-Glauchau).

This dynasty has been one of my personal favorites, mainly due to their absolutely phenomenal marriages that allied the family to other dynasties, among them: Austria, Saxony, Luxembourg and Portugal.

We expect to have copies available for dispatch after Thanksgiving!

A New Blogger Home for EUROHISTORY!

For some odd reason, Blogger has gone a bit crazy and blocked us from our own Blog.

Hence, having exhausted all options after two weeks of battling with Google and Blogger, we have decided to start a brand new blog!

Here at Eurohistory we will continue to do our best to provide you with an excellent magazine filled with very interesting and well-researched articles. That has been pour commitment since 1997, when we first opened our main site:

As time goes by, we are going to try to import all the previous articles we had published in the old Blog.

Meanwhile, we will start anew and hope that this is not an inconvenience to our readers and subscribers!

Enjoy the reading and continue coming by!

Arturo Beéche & the Eurohistory Team
