We don't have to look to works of fiction to find tales of true love. The pages of history are crammed with stories about love that are, quite literally, true. And many of them are among the greatest love stories ever told.
Ancient Love Stories brings together some of the most remarkable romances in history - from tales of fearless queens and besotted emperors to men who died fighting for the men they loved. These accounts of passion, jealousy, hope and longing show that perhaps little has changed over the last three thousand years - love, above all, has endured.
Written by award-winning classicist Emily Hauser and with beautiful artwork by illustrator Sander Berg.
