Anne Edwards tells the Aga Khans story by focusing on three generations-the current Aga Khan, his father and his grandfather. These are men who lives are those of fairy tales. They live in lavish surroundings, are notorious in their pursuit of women and throw outrageous parties. Read this book and you will find out. It makes you wonder how so many people in this religious sect can willfully turn a blind eye to the behavior of their Islamic leader – their holy man – who can’t stay faithful to his wife and has a string of failed marriages and a bunch of mistresses on the side, as Aga Khan III did. A holy man? What messed-up god is that?

Throne of Gold" was also educational in giving us a good introduction to the Ismaili people (of who the Aga Khan is the head), and the role the Aga Khan plays in the life of the Ismaili. It's a shame the current Aga Khan is much less conspicuous than his forebears but perhaps we'll get a future Aga Khan who is happy to live in the public eye and serve as media fodder.

The story of three generations of the (Aga) Khan dynasty, the spiritual head of the Ismaili Muslims with 20 million followers in India, Pakistan, East Africa and Central Asia. This book concentrates on three members of the Khan dynasty. Firstly, The Aga Khan III, the third heriditary ruler of the Muslim Ismaili Sect who was born to wealth and power in 1887 and who attempted to secure Muslim support for British Rule in India, most notably by founding the All-India Muslim League (1906) of which he was its President. The Aga Khan was a successful horse-owner and a friend of the Queen Mary, and became President of the League of Nations. Secondly, the book deals with Prince Aly Khan, the soldier, diplomat and playboy. His second wife was Rita Hayworth, but he had many other affairs and was killed in a car crash in 1960. Third and finally, the book deals with Prince Kharin, Aga Khan IV, who married a British fashion model, Lady Sarah Crichton-Stuart, in 1969.

I checked this book out from the library. Guess which religious group has a history of gambling womanizer bigamists as their honored religious leaders. Unsure? Read this book and you will find out. It makes you wonder how so many people in this religious sect can willfully turn a blind eye to the behavior of their Islamic leader – their holy man – who can’t stay faithful to his wife and has a string of failed marriages and a bunch of mistresses on the side, as Aga Khan III did. A HOLY MAN? What messed-up “god” is that? And by the way, why don’t the Aga Khans ever marry women from their own people, women who are their own age, instead of only marrying European models who are forty years younger? If I were a woman in this religious sect, I would be deeply offended as I would obviously NOT BE GOOD ENOUGH for the imam. Furthermore, who wants a leader who doesn’t even want to live among his own people in Pakistan or Syria or Iran or India, instead living it up in his palaces in Europe where he has easy access to his racehorses, casinos, private planes, ski resorts and female conquests? A HOLY MAN? Who would support such a fraud whose wealth came from the tithes of his own people who live mostly in poor, third world countries?

The Aga Khans – who would follow such a dynasty of hypocrites? The fate of the ignorant is deserved. There’s hope for those who want to de-convert.

This book shows a true face of aga khan and his false religion.
Aga khan is collecting millions of dollars from these innocent Ismailis and sadly they don't even know.
Aga khan money in cash was caught on international borders, if ismailism was a true religion there would have been transparencies in the money dealings. You can not even put a cheque for charity in any jamat Khanna ,it has to be cash as aga khan wants to hide it from the local government.
I believe every word in this book along with the list of all the historians comments and findings as Ann had referred in this book.

The book appears to have been written to enhance the sensationlization to a level where ignorant populace already against Ismailis would be amused and entertained. The previous review has already pointed out the gross and flagrant deviations from the facts. The Ismaili Imams represent the true face of Islam. The only community in the world whose followers meet every evening and morning at their Jamat Khanas for prayers and spiritual uplifment and boast bigger segments of highly educated members of the community than any other Muslim community of the world----a balance between the temporal and spiritual endevors of life. We are taught to respect other faiths and foster frontierless brotherhood. All these enducated people are not naive to follow the Imams depcited with a jaundiced eye by the author. In greater likelihood to fill her coffers but at the cost of compromising her conscience.
