Nearly a century before Tasmanian Mary Donaldson became Princess Mary of Denmark, the beautiful and talented Sydney-born Elsie Caroline Thompson - a singer, actress, dancer and comedienne - became the first Australian to marry overseas royalty - an Indian maharaja.
This is an epic historical novel based on Elsie's remarkable life, written after more than two decades of research, by Elsie's great-nephew, Chris Kunz. The novel contains snippets from actual newspaper articles, as well as records and private letters never before made public.
This book also solves a mystery associated with one of Australia's most famous incidents and takes the reader on a journey back in time and around the globe, following the trail of the first Australian princess.
