Summary: In 1824 Prince Wilhelm of Prussia and Princess Elisa Radziwill were very much in love, but they had been forbidden to marry. Their story is known as one of the most tragic royal romances of the 19th century. But were they in fact lovers, and did they have a child? A young woman named Agnes emigrated to Australia in 1848 to became the matriarch of a family in which it was whispered that she was a princess. Such stories abound as old wives' tales and most of them are unfounded, but this particular story is true.How did this happen, and how did it remain a secret until now? The book attempts to answer these questions, and in doing so throws light on the history of Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, in which Kaiser Wilhelm I and his successors would play a vital role. This book connects an Australian dynasty to controversial historical events in Europe and it represents 20 years of research into our own family history. It includes expert DNA analysis alongside a personal journey wrapped up in a ripping yarn.
