Prince Charles-Joseph de Ligne was a provocative writer, an ambitious general, a brilliant conversationalist, and an innovative garden designer. His desire for military and literary glory was as great as his appetite for lovers. A worldly aristocrat, equally at home in Paris, Vienna, and St. Petersburg, he electrified and wrote about everyone he met, from Catherine the Great to Casanova, Marie Antoinette to Goethe. Prince of Europe is a story overflowing with memorable incidents and characters, told with delicacy and skill by one of Britain’s leading historians.
Philip Mansel, who has lived and taught in Paris, is one of Britain's leading historians. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He currently lives in London.
