17 Carnations


17 Carnations chronicles the entanglement between Edward VIII, his American wife Wallis Simpson, and Hitler, starting with the Führer’s attempts to matchmake Edward with a German noblewoman. While the German foreign mininster sent Simpson seventeen carnations daily, each one representing a night they had spent together, she and Edward corresponded regularly with the German elite.
