The Last Emperor of Mexico: The Dramatic Story of the Habsburg Archduke Who Created a Kingdom in the New World

From archival research conducted in Mexico City, Paris, and Vienna, Shawcross vividly recreates the personalities and politics involved in the contest for what form of government would achieve dominance in the New World: republics or monarchies.
