$ 24.95

Born in Istanbul, Neslishah Sultan (1912-2012) was the granddaughter of Sultan Vahiddedin. In 1924, the imperial family was sent into exile. In 1940, on her marriage to Prince Abdel Moneim, the son of the last khedive of Egypt, she became a princess of the Egyptian royal family. When in 1952 her husband was appointed regent for Egypt's infant king, she became the country's first lady, until the abolition of the monarchy in 1953. Exile followed, this time from Egypt, after the couple faced charges of treason. This account of Neslishah's extraordinary life is also the story of the end of two powerful dynasties thirty years apart.
