'The Rock at the Side of the Queen: Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, and his Footprint in History' In his 99th year he may have largely disappeared from public view, but there is no doubt that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, together with the queen, are an intrinsic part of modern history. 'My strength and stay' was how Elizabeth II. called her husband on the anniversary of their golden wedding. In fact, the Duke has significantly helped to stabilize the British Monarchy, despite the many hurdles that lay in his way as a reformer. Thomas Kielinger, an authority in British history, retraces Philip's remarkable life.


Thomas Kielinger, b. 1940 in Danzig (modern-day Gdansk), has lived in London since 1998, first as UK-correspondent of the German daily 'Die Welt', now as author of much-acclaimed studies of British history which he chronicled in 'Kleine Geschichte Großbritanniens'. Biographies of Queen Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill followed, the latter also translated into Polish and Danish. His most recent book deals with the Tudor times: 'Die Königin. Elizabeth I. und der Kampf um England.' Kielinger is honorary officer of the 'Oder of the British Empire' (OBE) and holds the Federal Cross First Class of Germany. Queen Mary University London as well as the University of Cardiff awarded him an Honorary Fellowship.
