Rulers of Kings: A novel, by Gertrude Atherton (1857 - 1948)
When a child is born, its temperament and character are unknown. The effects of nature versus nurture, of heredity and of circumstance are a mystery. Rarely, the stars align to make an exceptional child, a man who will move mountains. Such was the case with the last Rudolf von Hapsburg, a man born before his time, as shown in this fictionalized historical account. (Summary by Lynne T.)

Welcome to Librivox!
I will just assign section 1 for now, but once that is complete, you can come back for 2 and 3 if you wish and they are still open.
