    Prince EddyWhy on why did I even bother to read this book You read over half of this before the Princes name is even mentioned Whether you believe Prince Eddy was homosexual or not the evidence presented seems to me to be hearsay or manufactu...

    I thought it was an excellent and balanced examination not only of Prince Eddy but also of the aristocratic milieu in which he moved socially, putting to rest possibly the theory that the heir presumptive to the Bri...

    Theo Aronson does NOT try to prove that Prince Eddy, Queen Victoria s grandson and Heir Presumptive son of the Heir Apparent or Prince of Wales was a homosexual He merely brings up evidence from the period, including the correspondence of other aristocrats who were and who appear to implicate the Prince without actually mentioning him The Cleveland Street Scandal is the primary focus Five telegraph boys were found to be trading favors at a house of prostitution male on Cleveland Street a Theo Aronson does NOT try to prove that Prince Eddy, Queen Victoria s grandson and Heir Presumptive son of the Heir Apparent or Prince of Wales was a homosexual He merely brings up evidence from the period, including the correspondence of other aristocrats who were and who appear to implicate the Prince without actually mentioning him The Cleveland Street Scandal is the primary focus Five telegraph boys were found to be trading favors at a house of prostitution male on Cleveland Street and implicate...

    This book is not a persuasive argument to me, but it sure is an interesting one I might beinclined to take Aronson seriously if he didn t have so many gay men highlighted in it Almost every single male figure that is mentioned as playing a role in Prince Albert Victor s life is tied to being gay, which I can t get on board with Some, yes, but everyone Not buying it.That said, Prince Eddy has always been one of the forgotten figures in history I sure knowabout Princess Charlotte This book is not a persuasive argument to me, but it sure is an interesting one I might beinclined to take Aronson seriously if he didn t have so many gay men highlighted in it Almost every single male figu...

    InterestingA very interesting account of Prince Eddy A completely plausible argument regarding his life and sexuality There have been men throughout history who have been accused, rightly or wrongly, to disparage their reputation As if this one fact alone determines their character or lack thereof The accounts of his character, regardless of his sexuality, is too numerous to di...

    Another review said that if you take Theo Aronson literally, every man in Britain must have been a homosexual The things to remember are that this is just a theory and that most of the men mentioned are involved in the raid or are highlighted as a homosexual to show...

    Compelling argument that Prince Eddy was the distinguished figure the authorities were trying to shield during the Cleveland Street scandal, backed up by contemporary correspondence I also enjoyed the chapters dealing with the prince s supposed role...

    Rather thin Pages and pages on why the Eddy was the Ripper theory is rubbish summary don t be bloody ridiculous but not that much sense of place and time beyond a long list of names My kindle is full of highlights but they are mostly things I want to find about in detail e...
