290 pages. Very Good in Very Good DJ. DJ has light edgewear. Henrietta Maria
(1609-1669) was the French-born English queen, wife of Charles I and mother of Charles
II and James II. The daughter of Henry IV of France and Marie de Mé dicis, she
was no stranger to political intrigue. By openly practicing Roman Catholicism at
court, she alienated many of Charles's subjects. Asthe English Civil Wars
approached, she sought without success to instigate a military coup to overthrow
the Parliamentari ans. Her further efforts to enlist support for Charles from
the pope, the French, and the Dutch infuriated many Englishmen. Deterioration of
the Royalist position caused her to flee to France in 1644, and she never again
saw her husband, who was executed in 1649. ISBN: 0698107136 (Henrietta Maria,
Charles I, Queens)
