Reckless Royal Rogues: Real-Life Royals Behaving Badly

Recklessly Royal by Nichole ChaseToday H&H is pleased to welcome author Nichole Chase. Nichole's latest book, Recklessly Royal, is the second in her Royal Series, and pairs a perfect princess with a man who is perfect—for her. Nichole knows, however, that many royals are far from perfect—and offers a few examples of some reckless and royal types. Thanks, Nichole!

“Off with his…er…pants!”

Royal families have been around for a long, long time. And from the first of the royals, there have been royals behaving badly. Some of them were downright frightening, others were silly, and the rest just tried to ignore the crazy cousins.

If you’re going to talk about royals behaving badly, you have to start with one of the most well-known. Henry VIII is by far one of the most infamous and naughty of the royals. When he wanted something, no one, not even the Pope was going to stand in his way. He created his own church just so he could divorce a woman and marry another—and later had the new wife beheaded! Oh, and the next wife lost her head as well. And the wife he divorced so he could marry Anne Boleyn? He divorced her because she was ugly. Yep. That was his honest reason. Thank goodness she escaped before he turned so bloodthirsty!

That guy divorced someone because he thought she was ugly. Too bad he didn’t look like the actor (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) that portrayed him in The Tudors.

(Jonathan sure does add a certain amount of man-candy to the historic show!)

[He really does, doesn't he?...]
