Overview

In Henry, King of France, the sequel to Young Henry of Navarre, the compelling epic of Henry IV’s reign over France is followed to its tragic destiny. The novel recounts two decades of chaos and war that led to the triumphant founding of the French Republic and culminated in the King’s assassination in 1589.

Praise

“The story moves swiftly, from scene to scene, almost like a play . . . The philosophy of the author, a philosophy touched by humor, shines transiently through the texture of the closely woven style.” (Saturday Review)
