Synopsis

A compelling tale of love, lust and murder which traces the evolution of Catherine de Medici - the great-granddaughter of Lorenzo the Magnificent - from an unloved, timid orphan to France's most cunning monarchA cold, ruthless murderess and occultist, or a loyal wife and mother, and the most competent monarch France ever knew?In The Devil's Queen, Jeanne Kalogridis examines Catherine de'Medici's attraction to astrology and the dark arts, as well as the political, religious and personal forces that converged during her life.Catherine de'Medici was one of France's most notorious and blood thirsty monarchs, feared by some as an occultist, seen to be consorting with the likes of Nostradamus and thought to have been responsible for the brutal St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre.For many she was loved as a monarch devoted to bringing about peace during the Wars of Religion. Others saw her as an unfortunate victim of circumstances, struggling to come to terms with the death of her own husband whom she loved dearly, as well as the tragic death of her own parents at an early age.In Kalogridis' most passionate and thought-provoking novel yet, we follow in the footsteps of France's orphan queen and her rise to power in the tumultuous climate of sixteenth century France.
