Editorial Reviews

Fine performances from classic British actors bring this dramatized biography of the Italian noblewoman and French queen to life. Narrator Joss Ackland's distinguished voice provides explanations of the pivotal events in Catherine's life and reign, which alternate with dramatic scenes performed by the talented actress Hazel Clyne and others. Despite being an older recording, the sound quality in this audiobook is clear, and those interested in the Catherine's tumultuous life will find this an enjoyable and accessible introduction to her story.

Publisher's Summary

Queen of France by her marriage to Henry II, Catherine dominated Europe's dying Renaissance, manipulating France by her goading of an hysterical and half-demented king. It was a colourful and blood-soaked time that is excitingly brought to life in this biography.
