New book, 414 pages. Prince Charles Joseph de Ligne was a provocative writer, an ambitious general, a brilliant conversationalist and an innovative garden designer. His desire for military and literary glory was as great as his appetite for lovers. An international aristocrat, equally at home in Paris, Vienna and St Petersburg, he electrified everyone he met, from Catherine the Great to Casanova, the Marie Antoinettte to Goethe.
