Theodore von Neuhoff, King of Corsica: The Man Behind the Legend.

This exciting biography by Julia Gasper, due out in November 2012, traces the unlikely career of the German baron who in 1736 had himself proclaimed and crowned King of Corsica.

Theodore von Neuhoff’s career spanned the entire continent and his role in the Corsican rebellion against Genoa was as bold and unconventional as everything else in his life. Mixing with royalty, rogues and rabble, he was successively a soldier, secret agent, Jacobite, speculator, alchemist, cabbalist, Rosicrucian, astrologer, fraudster, and spy.
