Royal palaces have always included splendid gardens for the pleasure of kings – and as a sign of their power. With their prestige, influence, taste and passion, royal families have created and left to posterity these unforgettable landscapes, all gorgeous places with exceptional historical importance.
Photographer Jean-Baptiste Leroux, who specialises in landscape photography, takes us on an exclusive walk through twenty-five of the most beautiful royal gardens in the world – in Europe, the Middle East and Asia – that have belonged, or still belong to, royal families. Author Stéphane Bern reveals the intriguing history of these gardens, accented by the personal testimonies of their owners.
Stéphane Bern is an expert on the history of monarchies and a well-known figure in French media. He is the anchor of Secrets d’histoire, a national French television show.
Jean-Baptiste Leroux is an acclaimed landscape and garden photographer whose work has been featured in many books, including Jardins à la française, Jardins de Versailles, and Dans les jardins des Grimaldi.
