About the Author

Robert Knecht is Professor of History at Birmingham University, England and a leading authority on early modern French history.


"As in all of Professor Knecht's books that I have read, the prose provides an excellent balance between evidently careful scholarship and readability, sustaining the interest of all kinds of readers by combining its focus on politics and warfare with intriguing details of court life, without resorting to factual overload or to unsupported conjecture...Knecht has produced...a must-read for those wishing to know more about the rulers of late medieval and early modern France, as well as a refreshing overview for those already well-versed in the topic." -Kate Maxwell, The Sixteenth Century Journal, Fall 2008
