'It should be in every research library and carefully studied by every student of the period. There is no comparable work in English …'. J. Russell Major, American Historical Review
'Knecht's study of Francis I is certainly the point of departure for all those who wish to reflect on these matters. They may be somewhat repelled by the chief player, but they will be richly entertained and instructed.' David Parker, The Times Literary Supplement
'The original book [Francis I] … quickly took its place as one of the most important books on the period in any language … What is involved here is not just a revision; Knecht has in fact produced a substantially new book, on a grander scale.' David Potter, European History Quarterly
' … well structured and well written. Students and specialists alike are presented with a reasonable case for analysing Francis on his own terms and Knecht finds him deserving of a more significant place in French history than he has often been allowed'. History Review
This book offers a full and comprehensive account of one of the most colourful and formative reigns in French history, that of Francis I (1515–47). First published to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Francis's birth in 1994, this book is a completely revised version of Knecht's earlier study of the king, Francis I, which was for many years the standard work on the subject. That edition has been superseded by this substantially larger work, in which much new written and illustrative material is included. No other English work on the subject is as up-to-date or as authoritative.
