Publisher's description: Throughout history and around the world, monarchies have overseen the creation of splendid gardens on the grounds of their royal palaces, leaving a legacy of incredibly gorgeous places rich with historical importance. These gardens were conceived not only for the pleasure of kings and queens but also as a sign of their power. In this lavishly illustrated book, photographer Jean-Baptiste Leroux takes us on an exclusive walk through some of the most beautiful gardens in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia--all of which have belonged, or still belong, to royal families. Author Stephane Bern presents the intriguing history of these unforgettable landscapes, accented by personal testimonies of their owners.
