  • Description
  • Author
The 250th Anniversary edition of this essential reference remains the only publication to list all the members of all the imperial, royal, princely and ducal houses and the courts of the Holy Roman Empire.

The Times Literary Supplement praised the Almanach de Gotha for a "punctilious itemization of titles, lineage and heraldry [aiming] for scholarship rather than sensation". Sir Stephen Runciman wrote in the Spectator"In this present age, which we are often told sees the twilight of royalty, it is comforting to be able to welcome the reappearance of the most distinguished of genealogical almanacs."

The 250th Anniversary 2013 edition follows the successful format of previous editions with families listed by rank in their corresponding parts. Births, marriages and deaths of all members of the Gotha have been updated and it remains the only publication to listall the members of all the imperial, royal, princely and ducal houses and the courts of the Holy Roman Empire. Even family disputes are handled by the careful noting of competing claims. This new edition also sees a full list ofthe households of the courts of Europe, diplomatic listings and a full entry for the Holy See.

This is the official and authorised publication. The most comprehensive listing of its kind, with an impeccable pedigree, the book remains an essential reference for genealogists, libraries and scholars. There is and never has been a comparable source, a book once described as "the second most important ever published".

John James has studied medieval construction for the past 68 years. He practiced as an architect before following his true love of Gothic. Over the years he has published a dozen books and almost a hundred articles and studies, all on the architecture he loves. At the same time he founded and ran the Crucible Centre in the mountains west of Sydney to fulfil his personal longing for the sacred, and it is utterly appropriate that this last book should amalgamate these two strands of his life, hard as it was for him to complete the last chapter
