Críticas:

'well-written and engaging.' -- Sally Cousins THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'this dense often funny account... it is full of choice details.' -- Robbie Hudson THE SUNDAY TIMES 'It's a tale of poisonings, duels, black magic and incest that Frieda does full justice to in this detailed by colourful study' -- Simon Beckett THE OBSERVER 'a scholarly yet immensely readable biography.' WATERSTONE'S QUARTERLY 'she's written a history book that has al the pace and excitement of a novel, a rare achievement indeed.' CHOICE 'it is skilfully written and on balance sympathetic to Catherine's stewardship.' -- Owen Dawson THE IRISH TIMES

Reseña del editor:

The bestselling revisionist biography of one of the great women of the 16th century

Orphaned in infancy, Catherine de Medici was the sole legitimate heiress to the Medici family fortune. Married at fourteen to the future Henri II of France, she was constantly humiliated by his influential mistress Diane de Poitiers. When her husband died as a result of a duelling accident in Paris, Catherine was made queen regent during the short reign of her eldest son (married to Mary Queen of Scots and like many of her children he died young). When her second son became king she was the power behind the throne.

She nursed dynastic ambitions, but was continually drawn into political and religious intrigues between Catholics and Protestants that plagued France for much of the later part of her life. It had always been said that she was implicated in the notorious Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre, together with the king and her third son who succeeded to the throne in 1574, but was murdered. Her political influence waned, but she survived long enough to ensure the succession of her son-in-law who had married her daughter Margaret.
