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 Stéphane Bern presents the intriguing history of these unforgettable landscapes, accented by personal testimonies of their owners.
