This book is unfortunately available only in Finnish - yet -, but I truly hope it will be translated! The title of the book goes something like this in English: Scandinavian Princesses - From Viking Maids to Renaissance Princesses. That is period from year 600 to year 1600. It's historical book written for wider public. It was enjoyable containing royal gossips from over thousand and several hundreds years ago! Life back then wasn't necessarily THAT different - the sorrows and joys were surprisingly similar as they are today. Princesses destiny wasn't always easy one, but many of them were very strong and independent - some ruled their kingdoms when their husband and/or son died. The writer has PhD in History. Nevertheless, the book wasn't "dry", it was well written and with humour. Hopefully this will be translated one day and if it will, I do recommend to read it!
