Summary
The youngest child of George V and Queen Mary, Prince John is loved for his frankness by his grandfather, the ailing King Edward II. But this strange and opinionated little boy suffers from epilepsy, and mysterious learning disabilities prevent him from participationg in public life. As the world edges towards war, his mother and his newly crowned father are increasingly distant, embroiled in world affairs, while the medical profession declares Johnnie an imbecile and an embarrassment to the family. Only his devoted nurse, Lalla, sees the true prince locked inside the stubborn shell. Born into a world of imperial splendor, Prince John lives his short life isolated from the world -- a silent witness to one of the most explosive eras of human history
