It’s the great fantasy of many a little girl: to be a princess, just once. But what was daily life in a royal court really like? Did princesses have to go to school, too? What haircuts and jewelry did they wear to a ball? And why did they need a flea trap?
This volume is an invitation to a dazzling and at the same time factually grounded trip into the pompous life of the Baroque era. Special highlight: A removable page with a perforated princess puppet.
