(026810) Hamilton, Elizabeth. Henrietta Maria. New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, 1976. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 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)
