Catherine De' Medici

Front Cover
R.J. Knecht has written a gripping narrative of one of the most controversial of all historical figures, Catherine de'Medici (1519-89), who was the wife of one king of three more. She was powerful enough to be hated and was -- in her own lifetime and since -- the subject of a "Black Legend".
