    I've been awfully spoiled recently with plucking books off my shelves that are awesome Warning there be some spoilers My knowledge of Catherine de Medici is very basic I know the vague outline of her life and reputation and always was a bit sympathetic to her because let's be honest she really did draw the short straw in life and made the most of a crappy situation time after time I enjoyed that this story began with the sack of Rome when

    This is a historical romance and if you are a fan of this genre of novels I would recommend this book to you I am not a fan and for that reason I did not finish the book It starts out with Catherine Medici as a 8 year old in Florence and I managed to read through the trials and tribulations of her childhood I am not sure how accurate the story is and through to the start of her marriage Not having finished t

It is hard to make a ueen who shoulders the blame for a religious massacre sympathetic so Jeanne Kalogridis doesn t try Instead she goes the complete opposite direction Giving us an unsentimental ueen who would commit any atrocity to save herself or someone she loves Even as a girl she is already murdering and dabbling in black magic For those of you unfamiliar with Catherine de Medici the Italian born duchess was reduced to living in a convent after her family was deposed in Florence In a true Cinderella story she marries the second son Henry of King Francoise of France She ends up the ueen of France and though a mere figurehead during her husbands rule she has a great influence over the reigns of her sons Because Catherine ruled France during such a tumultuous time religious upheaval civil wars weak kings her reign was marked with political gaffes and intrigues the most notably The ST Bartholomew s Massacre leading to the deaths of tens of thousands of Huguenots French Protestants Never faltering and with clear determination Catherine meets rivals for her husbands heart and traitors seeking to claim the throne Kalogridis Catherine is decidedly evil which makes for entertaining story telling and is historically probable The author doesn t try to excuse any of Catherine s behavior but she does give us fictionalized back story to try and establish her motivations Since Kalogridis is prone to dramatics and excessive detail she s also known for a lively look into the family of Dracula let me say that if you re looking for historical accuracy this probably isn t your novel But if you re looking for a spirited read that enlivens history into Catherine s time The Devil s ueen is an excellent choice I thoroughly enjoyed itI d like to add that I was fortunate enough to pick up the audio version read by Kate Reading Reading delivers a commanding ueen and is pure magic to listen to The French words are pronounced perfectly to my English ears and her pacing is spot on

Frieda Leonie has written an excellent history of Catherione de Medici based on deep research I gave it 5 stars and highly recommend it to people interested in Catherine de Medici and the Valois lineage of French rulers I have read a few reviews of Kalogridis s book on Goodreads and am afraid this historical novel The Devil s ueen A Novel of Catherine de Medici may be closer to a Philippi

finally assigned it 3 starsI finally read the novel The Devil s ueen in November 2013 It is an interesting book and has much of the history of Friedo Leonie s book The novel appears to be based on much of the documentation of this history with two large differences In the novel pages and pages are based on Catherine s meetings with astrologers and other students of magic throughout her life In the history it is barely mentioned and the characters of the astrologers and Nostrodamus are not mentioned In the novel the author says she only depicted 5 of the children because it would take up too much space to have the others born Ironically her history deals with the births and names of all Catherine s children on ONE PAGEIn contrast Leonie s is a real history full of facts relationships and

Fortunately there are numerous records letters and memoirs from this era This Italian descendant of the de Medici family was hard to marry off in France because she was not of royal lineage but from a merchant family The book begins with a summary of the Medici family but did not stress the contributions to the arts by the family especially Lorenzo The Magnificent Catherine herself continued the family history of sponsoring the arts Catherine de Medici was treated as an evil manipulative ueen and she certainly was manipulative including using her voice and statements to ingratiate herself when needed Childless for 10 years she then rapidly had 10 children and she made certain that her sons inherited the crown but she was the real ruler of France As Freida portrayed her the real period of evil was the Massacre on Saint Barthalomew s day in which Huguenots and Royal armies battled gruesomely under her rule Prior to that time she had led to many treaties that were intended to pacify the land Frieda distinguished the treaties that allowed for freedom of religion and later in Catherine s reign freedom of thought While Catherine was regent during their youth she continued to rule and advise her sons long after they reached a normal age of rule on their own 18 usually but contracts could set different ages While her Catholicism would have led her to support Mary ueen of Scots she and England s ueen Elizabeth communicated uite often and with respect near the end of Catherine s life I would urge anyone really interested in the Medici s this era and Catherine de Medici to
