Description - Catherine de Medici by Jean Heritier

Originally published in 1968 this book is an unforgettable portrait of an impoverished orphaned daughter of the Medici, pitchforked at the age of fourteen into her royal destiny and having to bear the rivalry of Diane de Poiters and the description 'the Florentine shopkeeper' who nevertheless became one of the most powerful characters in the shaping of sixteenth century Europe.
