Our fascination with the romance between Prince William and Kate Middleton is nothing new. The world has always loved a royal love story and a stack of books from over the ages proves that to be true. Here are 10 of the most interesting.
人们对威廉王子和凯特之间爱情故事的着迷并不新鲜。这个世界总是对皇室的爱情故事亲睐有加,多年来这类故事书籍的畅销也证明了这一点。下面就是其中十个最有趣的:

1. "Nicholas and Alexandra," by Robert K. Massie
《尼古拉与亚历山德拉》,作者:Robert K. Massie

This doomed pair found true love in one another but history did not allow its course to run smooth. The story of Nicholas, the last of the Russian czars, and Alexandra, his beloved wife and mother of his five children, was told movingly by historian Robert K. Massie in this highly popular 1967 biography, which was also adapted to a 1971 film.
这对命中注定的情人彼此倾心,但命运却让他们的情路坎坷不平。俄国最后一个沙皇尼古拉大帝与其心爱的妻子,五个孩子的母亲亚历山德拉的爱情故事在史学家Robert K. Massie这本1967年的畅销传记中被讲的缠绵悱恻,并在1971年被翻拍成电影。

2. "We Two," by Gillian Gill
《我们俩》,作者:Gillian Gill

Generally seen as one of history's most powerful and happily married couples, Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert enjoyed 20 years of marriage. Gill's book about their union is subtitled "Victoria and Albert: Rulers, Partners, Rivals," and her biography delivers a perceptive view of the husband and wife team that she labels "a forerunner of today's power couple."
维多利亚女王和丈夫阿尔伯特王子的二十年婚姻常被视为历史上最有权势又最美满的婚姻。Gill的这本书的副标题则是“维多利亚与阿尔伯特:统治者、伴侣、对手”,该传记中这两夫妇被描写成“当代权力夫妇的先驱”。

3. "The Commoner," by John Burnham Schwartz
《布衣》,作者:John Burnham Schwartz

Based on the lives of the current empress and crown princess of Japan, John Burnham Schwartz's novel blurs fact and fiction to imagine the challenges of the first commoner ever to marry into Japan's royal family. Monitor reviewerYvonne Zipp called this novel "a compassionate portrayal" of "a stifled, unhappy" life.
取材于现任日本天皇及皇后的生活,这本John Burnham Schwartz的小说模糊了现实与幻想,书中他描写了一个世上首位加入日本皇室的平民女性的故事。箴言报书评家Yvonne Zipp将这部小说称为对一个“窒息且不幸”人生的“同情写照”。

4. "Marie Antoinette: The Journey," by Antonia Fraser
《玛丽皇后:旅程》作者:Antonia Fraser

She was only 14 and he was a very awkward 16. When Marie Antoinette wed Louis XVI there was nothing fairy tale about their romance. Intended principally to strengthen the Austrian-French alliance, the marriage took more than six years to consummate. Antonia Fraser's highly readable biography of Marie Antoinette is a tragedy rather than a romance but it remains a compelling story.
当玛丽·安托瓦内特嫁给路易十六世的时候,她只有14岁,而他则是个怪怪的16岁少年,两人并没有什么童话般的爱情故事。这段婚后六年才圆房的婚姻本来就是为了加强奥地利与法国的联盟而设。这本Antonia Fraser撰写的传记非常具可读性,虽然更多的是一个爱情故事,但依然非常引人入胜。

5. "Antony and Cleopatra," by Colleen McCullough
《安东尼与克莉奥佩特拉》作者:Colleen McCullough

No list of famous – or infamous – royal romances would be complete without the story of Cleopatra. "Thornbirds" author Colleen McCullough was brave enough to follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare with her lively retelling of the tragic romance between Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, and Roman scion Mark Antony.
谈到皇室罗曼史,不管是台面上的还是台面下的,都避不开埃及艳后的故事。《荆棘鸟》的作者Colleen McCullough勇敢地挑战了莎士比亚的前作,栩栩如生地再次讲述了尼罗河女王埃及艳后与罗马名门之后安东尼之间的爱情故事。

6. "The Six Wives of Henry VIII," by Alison Weir
《亨利八世和他的六个太太》作者:Alison Weir

Each one is a fascinating story in its own right. Bestselling author Alison Weir does an excellent job of weaving all six together in this detailed accounting of the many marriages of Tudor monarch King Henry VIII.
每个太太都有着引人入胜的故事,而畅销书作家Alison Weir则将亨利八世的八个太太的故事完美的组合在了一起。

7. "Beneath a Marble Sky," by John Shors
《大理石天空下》作者:Johan Shors

Seventeenth-century Hindustan is the backdrop to one of the grandest of royal love stories, that of the marriage of emperor Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal, the wife for whom he built the Taj Mahal. Shors' historic novel is told from the point of view of their daughter.
这部以十七世纪的印度蒙兀儿帝国为背景的历史小说讲述了世上最壮美的皇室爱情之一,沙贾汉与其皇妃泰姬·玛哈的爱情故事。泰姬陵正是两人爱情的结晶。Shors在这本小说里以他们的女儿的视角讲述了两人的故事。

8. "Freddy and Fredericka," by Mark Helprin
《弗雷迪和弗雷德里卡》作者:Mark Helprin

This thinly veiled satire of the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana may not have much historic veracity (Helprin sends the oddly matched couple on a secret mission to conquer the United States) but it offers many more laughs than the actual royal union which inspired it.
这本一看可知是暗指查尔斯王子和戴安娜王妃的小说可能没什么史学参考价值(书中作者甚至让这对怪怪夫妇进行了一趟秘密征服美国之旅),但确实比现实生活里的这对皇家怨偶好玩多了。

9. "The Princess of Cleves," by Madame de LaFayette
《克里弗斯公主》作者:拉法耶特夫人

This 17th-century novel tells the story of the young Princess of Cleves, living in the court of Henry II of France, but sadly unable to love her husband. She is attracted instead to the dashing Duc de Nemours. Except for the heroine, almost all the characters in this meticulously created novel are actual figures from 16th-century France.
这本17世纪的小说讲述了一个年轻的克里弗斯公主生活在法国亨利二世的后宫,却无法爱上她的丈夫的故事。书中她被内穆尔公爵所吸引。除了女主角,书中所有角色都是16世纪法国的真实历史人物。

10. "William and Kate: A Royal Love Story," by Christopher Andersen
《威廉与凯特:一个皇家爱情故事》作者:Christopher Andersen

Bestselling author Christopher Andersen tells the story of the courtship of British royal Prince William and Kate Middleton, the solidly middle-class young woman who will now become his bride. Andersen also does his best to look into the future, speculating on the kind of couple that William and Kate will become。
畅销书作家Christopher Andersen在此书中讲述了英国王子威廉与中产家庭少女凯特的爱情故事。Andersen也同时预测了,详细描述了威廉凯特夫妇在婚后将如何相处。
