Product description

Review

'Herman has a delightful appreciation for all things beautiful and terrible. With her dishy signature style and a dazzling command of the facts, she brews up a heady mix of erudite history and delicious gossip' (Aja Raden, New York Times bestselling author of Stoned)

'Whether deliberate, accidental or the result of an antidote, the gruesome outcome of ingestion of toxins is deftly described in The Royal Art of Poison. Add political intrigue, disgusting sanitation, ubiquitous filth, horrendous medical procedures, and every sort of vermin and you get a very different picture to what we romantically assume to be the 'good old days.' (Penny Le Couteur, author of Napoleon's Button)

Book Description

Replete with royal conspiracies as venomous as the toxins they used to obtain power, beauty and revenge
