Philip Droege (1967) is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He is known for his love for ‘untold stories’ as well as his humoristic approach to historical non-fiction. His first book, about the Dutch royal consort prince Bernhard (2002), is an example of well-researched biographical craftsmanship.

After this debut, Mr. Droege wrote about the cataclysmic eruption of the Tambora Volcano in Indonesia and the microstate of Moresnet. His last two books were shortlisted for prestigious prizes. Moresnet is also published in a German translation, an Italian version will see the light in 2019. His latest book is called Pelgrim (‘Pilgrim’) and tells the story of a Dutch scholar-cum-spy who made it to Mecca in the later part of the nineteenth century.

Both for work (among which National Geographic) and pleasure Mr. Droege has traveled to some of the most remote corners of the world.
