Comments Henrietta Maria: Charles I's Indomitable Queen

  • Wealhtheow

    Tells the tale of Henrietta Maria, the French princess who married Charles I. Despite the wealth of historical documents, including a lot of her letters, no good idea of her personality comes across. She's a very lackluster sort of woman, apparently. And despite the revolutions, assasinations, and executions herein, this is a boring book.
