    One thought on “Catherine De Medici”

    1. This book is very well written and presents an unbiased view of the Queen and her royal family, significant events and key people in her era- (whether it be friends or foes). I especially like it when she includes views held by other authors, third party personalities and from the so called experts.

    2. What a vivid account! I loved the descriptive detail of unbelievable episodes from the 16th century French court. Frieda adds just enough detail and context to add dimension to her biography without ever making the reader feel as though they've lost track of the main narrative - the life of a singular diplomat and remarkable woman, Catherine de Medici.
