Rare 50 historic Roman Catholic prayers to 12 Germanic royal saints. Most prayers are from the Middle Ages and have been translated from French, German & Latin.
Other prayers are to Jesus and Mary as well as for the present-day countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg) where these saintly monarchs ruled. Some kingdoms no longer exist but were once important thrones of power and political intrigue.
The book is illustrated with beautiful color photos and European religious paintings from the Renaissance. Inspiring life stories. Medieval litanies to popular saints seldom heard of today.
Much research was involved in finding these saintly kings and queens as well as locating their images in historic paintings and finding prayers to them, such as ancient litanies.
